`f(x)= x^2 + x^2 +x -2`

We will use the substitution to find the approximate root.

From the graph below, we notice that the root is between 0 and 1.

==> x=0 ==> f(0)= -2

==> x= 1==> f(1)= 1

Then the root between 0 and 1

We will try x= 1/2

==> x= 1/2 ==> f(1/2)= -1.125

Now we know that the root between 1/2 and 1.

We will try 3/4

==> f(3/4)= -0.265625

Then, we notice that the root is located between 3/4 and 1.

Then, `x in (3/4, 1)`
