The method of false position or in Bisection method. can we put initial values as the integer values or it is necessary that the initial values must be whole numbers?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

E.g suppose i have question . x(3)-x-11=0 where x(3) is x raised cube

for initial values a and b. if i put a=2.3 and b= 2.4 . for 'a' function give -ve value and for 'b' function give +ve value.. is that supposition of 'a' and 'b' is correct . or i must have to put whole number. i-e a=2 and b=3 . and then start respective iterations of false position or bisection.
