    I have no idea what you mean by the "fixed point equation". A value (number, point, etc.) satifying f(x)= x for a given function is a "fixed point" of that function. That may be the equation you are looking for.

    so to find a fixed point f(x)=x and the numbers found are at there peak or that they are on the y=x axis.ive got a quadratic equation to work from and asked to find the fixed points.im unsure but thank you for your help.
