Hey ReneG.

Hint: Try differentiating both sides to get a differential equation and solve from there.

(These kinds of problems are known as integro-differential equations)

## What is this?

A friend of mine gave this to me as a challenge. I almost have no clue what I'm supposed to do

he says "Solve for the following equation for f(x)"

can anyone tell me what type of problem this is so I can do a bit of research on my own? My understanding of calculus only spans from Calc I to Calc II
