first of all, the way you defined your functions is sloppy. i am not even sure what k(x) is. if it is supposed to be you should define it as (1/2)*x*exp(2*x) - 2*x + 3 in Maple.

Also I need to find b using fsolve for this same problem. I know I need to write something like b:=fsolve(H(x)=K(x),x=3..4.1); .I am not sure if I have set that up right, and I'm pretty sure that the x=3..4.1 doesn't belong, and something else should go there. Have I done this correctly? I am getting the same thing I typed out come back in blue, but the equal sign between the x and 3 has turned into a comma for some reason. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me with either of these problems.
if you wish
