Find the Intersection Points of Two Functions
In an integration exercise, I'm to find the area of the region bounded by these two functions:

g(x) = sin(x)
f(x) = [3/(5pi)]*x

I need to find the point(s) of intersection (other than the origin) for this graph, but I'm not sure what to do next.

a solution by the method of "observation" ...

the functions intersect at $x = \frac{5\pi}{6}$
