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

Find the x-coordinate of the first point in the region where intersects . Give your answer to 6 significant figures.

2. Relevant equations

x_1=x_0- (f(x)/f'(x))

3. The attempt at a solution

I equated the two equations and got:

0=tanx-5x

I also looked at the graph and got that the intersection point is around 1.5

I used newton's method but the only thing I keep getting is 0, can anyone help me to find the OTHER intersection point?
