Problem 965. False position (linear interpolation) method of finding a root.

Test the false position algorithm described in Chapter 5 of Steven C. Chapra's textbook, Applied Numerical Methods with MATLAB for Engineers and Scientists. The first test case uses the following problem on the interval [1 3].
f(x)=x^2-4=0
The first test will be a single iteration of false position. Other tests for varying termination criteria, intervals, and other functions will be added later.
