and

e^(10)-e^(10-x)-x/(e^(10)-11)=0.75

-Solve both for x.

-Can you solve both of these for x without a Ti-89 calculator? If so how?

-The reason I want to calculate this is to find upper and lower quartiles of a deformity angle which is defined by the function on the left hand side of the equals sign.

**Steve**, Friday, September 28, 2012 at 11:00amYou can certainly solve for x without a TI-89, but you will need to use some kind of iterative method.

Judging by the shape of the curve, Newton's method should converge quite rapidly.
