y = sin x and y = x^2 - x, 0 ≤ x ≤ 2.

**Reiny**, Sunday, January 27, 2013 at 4:31pmI made a rough sketch and it looks like the sine curve and the parabola intersect at x=0 and somewhere around 1.6

Not sure what methods you have at your disposal to solve x^2 - x - sin(x) = 0

but we will need that second value of x at that intersection.

Are you familiar with Newton's method?
