In mathematics, the bisection method is a root-finding method that applies to any continuous functions for which one knows two values with opposite signs. The method consists of repeatedly bisecting the interval defined by these values and then selecting the subinterval in which the function changes sign, and therefore must contain a root. It is a very simple and robust method, but it is also relatively slow. Because of this, it is often used to obtain a rough approximation to a solution which is then used as a starting point for more rapidly converging methods. The method is also called the interval halving method, the binary search method, or the dichotomy method.For polynomials, more elaborated methods exist for testing the existence of a root in an interval (Descartes' rule of signs, Sturm's theorem, Budan's theorem). They allow extending bisection method into efficient algorithms for finding all real roots of a polynomial; see Real-root isolation.
The image attached above from a textbook, explains that we should refrain from using (a+b)/2 while applying Bisection method but I am unable to get the reason why it is asking to do so?
While the image above is from another textbook. This book uses (a+b)/2.

The Bisection Method solves equations of the form $\displaystyle f\left( x \right) = 0 $ so we must write the equation as $\displaystyle 11\cos{ \left( x \right) } - 1 + 2\,\mathrm{e}^{-x/10} = 0 $. We can then see that $\displaystyle f\left( x \right) = 11\cos{ \left( x \right) } - 1 +...
The Bisection Method is used to solve equations of the form $\displaystyle f\left( x \right) = 0 $, so we need to rewrite the equation as $\displaystyle 8\cos{ \left( x \right) } - \mathrm{e}^{-x/7} = 0 $. Thus $\displaystyle f\left( x \right) = 8\cos{ \left( x \right) } - \mathrm{e}^{-x/7} $...

In Matlab I am trying to use the composite Simpson's rule to find ##x_l## so that

For convenience this can be written as
$$I(x) = 170 - \int^x_0 \sqrt{1 + (\frac{x^2}{68000})} dx$$
