Question 1
when the question asks use at most calculations, does that mean that our k value starts at 4? and we can use this in the formula (b-a)/fk < 2e ?

The algorithm for the Fibonacci search given in the notes is based on the assumption that you have a certain specified tolerance which you must go under. However, this is not the case in the assignment - you simply have to reduce the interval to as small as possible, using 4 f-calculations. So you may have to modify the given algorithm slightly to suit your purposes. In particular, you have no e, so the formula (b-a)/F_k < 2e is going to be hard to apply.
