1. I am asked to find the roots of this function:
ln(x^3 + 1) = sin(2x) + 5
I have completely forgotten how to do this as its been awhile since high school Can anyone please help?
Thanks in advance
The teacher asked me to find the root. You can use analytically, numerically or graphically. Judging from the posts I am assuming that an analytical way is pretty much impossible and therefore I can just use my graphing calculator.
Thanks for confirming
Reply to AsZ: Given that this post is in the pre-calculus forum, I doubt if the Intermediate Value Theorem is required, or even that it is required to prove the existence of roots. Certainly, proving existence isn't a bad idea - it could save loads of time, especially if there aren't any...
