    Need help solving this equation!

    Problem:
    Need help solving this equation!-iz7uqs.png

    How would you solve this for 0? Does it involve newton's method or is there a simpler way? There are three points where the y=0 by the way. Please help me with this! Thanks.

    I don't think there is a simpler way to solve this. An approximation method would be the best idea, the Newton Raphson method would be pretty easy.
