I have an equation that i want to numerically find the root of by using Newton Raphson. However the equation involves an integral which i am using the trapazoidal rule to evaluate. And here is the simplified version of it:

[tex] 1 = e^{-cy} \int_0^1 e^{-y(1-x)} dx [/tex]

So i am supposed to integrate for x and then solve the resulting equation for values of y. How do i do that??

If i just wanted to do the integration, i would have used "syms" and found the result in terms of y... but i am totally stumped with this... please... SOS!
