Find the intervals containing the soltuions for [itex] 4x^2 - e^x = 0 [/itex](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

now this cant be solved by elementary methods since all i get is

[tex] x - 2 \ln(x) = \ln(4) [/tex]

finding the derivative doesnt help either

[tex] f'{x} = 8x - e^x [/tex]

[tex] 0 = 8x - e^x [/tex]

cant just GUESS ... that isn't right ...

this is for a numericals methods class, i do not believe that they wat me to use fixed point iteration or anything else for that matter with this problem

please help! Thank you!
