Using FindRoot

Can you solve the exact answer (meaning as close as possible that
equally satisfies both sides with the same result) to equations like
these below using FindRoot, and how? Or do you use a better function?


(*Can FindRoot get the closest answer possible to this equation or ones
like it below?*)

x^2==x^3
(*OR*)
x^2==x


Thanks,
Alan
