False Position, Double False Position and Cramer's Rule
Boman, Eugene
College Mathematics Journal, v40 n4 p279-283 Sep 2009
We state and prove the methods of False Position (Regula Falsa) and Double False Position (Regula Duorum Falsorum). The history of both is traced from ancient Egypt and China through the work of Fibonacci, ending with a connection between Double False Position and Cramer's Rule.
