Solve the equation 4sin x = e^x on the interval (0, 1). Correctly rounded to two decimal places, x=
That is a nasty equation.
We might use Newton's Method, but that would be Calculus.
I tried some "trial and erro" and got
x = appr .371
using 2 decimals
4 sin .37 = 1.44646
e^.37 = 1.4477
I am curious what method was suggested that you should use.
