Hi I wonder if anyone can help. I am not even sure I am on the right forum.

I cannot solve this equation for t. It is the final sequence of a number of equations in a book about modelling athletic performance using bioenergetics. I had a high school maths education 40 years ago and I’m stumped. I have tried Mathway app to solve equations but I think requires a human touch... The author says itÂ’s easy to create a predicted finishing time “just solve for T”.

P= 1/F(T)[(1+w/W)F*C*D/T+k(D/T)^3+2(1+w/W)(D/T)^2*1/T]

There is a hint it may involve “bisection” whatever this may be.

Any help appreciated.

Many Thanks

Bill
