Hello there! :)

How should i solve for x in this equation:

p*e^-x + q*sin(x) + r*cos(x) + s*tan(x) + t*x^2 + u = 0

with the user to input the values of p,q,r,s,t and u.

i'm thinking of looping from 0.0001 until i-dont-know-what

and then testing each value of x that will satisfy the equation.

but i dont think that's very efficient... especially if the given p,q,r,s,t and u values would yield to no possible value of x...

Post for this prob is right here:
