    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}
