Bissection Method- Baseball Question
 
Hey!

I've been asked to write a code which will calculate the angle at which a batter must strike so that the ball lands 200ft from home plate.

Apparently to solve it I have to use a bissection method in order to find the roots of
R(theta) - 200ft = 0

I really have no idea what this means, if anyone can maybe help get me started, it would be a great help!

Thanks
