(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the coordinates of the first inflection point to the right of the origin.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know that the inflection point would equal zero for the second derivative of a function and that the second derivative of this function is (xcosx-sinx)/x².

(xcosx-sinx)/x² = 0

(xcosx-sinx) = 0

xcosx = sinx

x = tanx

I'm not sure what to do after this or if the steps were taken incorrectly.
