KUDOS TO ANYONE WHO GETS THIS!!

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

For Perturbation Methods class we are supposed to find two-term asymptotic expansions for the two real roots of xe^{-x}= [tex]\epsilon[/tex]as [tex]\epsilon[/tex]-->0+

2. Relevant equations

xe^{-x}= [tex]\epsilon[/tex]as [tex]\epsilon[/tex]-->0+

x = [tex]\epsilon[/tex]e^{-x}

3. The attempt at a solution

Graph x = [tex]\epsilon[/tex]e^{-x}and y=x. Find the first root near 0; how do I find the second root and then the two-term asymptotic expansion for these two real roots??
