    [SOLVED] Equation problem

    I might be posting this into the wrong heading. Apologies in that case.

    Need help with the following question.

    "The Equation x-ln(x^2)=0, x≠0 has one solution. Decide the solution numerically using your calculator. Answer with the three decimals."

    Thanks in advance

    What have you done and what problems are you having.

    (You should use either the bisection or the Newton-Raphson method).
