    Intersection Equation

    Hi,

    How would you find the intersection between e^x and x^2, without a calculator?

    Thanks

    It's not a fun thing to do.

    There are two solutions for the intersection and you can find them without a calculator using a numerical method such as Newton's method or the Bisection method. There are other methods but these two are the best to start with.
