Show that the equation xe^x = 1 has a solution between 0<x<1.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Well for this I simply changed to x = 1/e^x

Iterated starting with x=1, and got 0.567

Is that the right way to go about this problem?

Then it asks, prove that the solution is unique, which I guess means there is no other solution for the equation but 0.567.

How would I go about this part?
