## Roots of implicit equations

I was working on double integrals when I came across the equation: x^(3/2)=sin(x).
There was no noticeable way to isolate the equation for x without having a function of x equal to x. I am wondering how to isolate equations involving logs, sines, etc when it is given in an implicit form.
Using a computer, I was able to get an approximation of 0 and 8.02... How do I get the EXACT value of x?
 I don't think that can be solved analytically, numerical approximations are the best you can get.

## Roots of implicit equations

How did you get an answer to 500 decimal places?!
 Mathematica (for example) can do it.
