I'm just wondering if there's a way to solve this equation algebraically:

$\displaystyle e^{x}$+$\displaystyle x=0$

My calculator gives me that x is approximately -0.567.

I suspect that if there's a way to solve this it probably has something to do with complex numbers, but I don't know as I haven't started using them yet.

And btw, is there something wrong with Latex, or is it just my computer that is getting a little anxious over something?
