Re: Simple Problem (I suppose...)


The answer to your problem is also very simple: You are using the
underscore in the definition of f as subscript, so Mathematica can not
interpret x as a variable. Try the following definition for f 

\!\(f[x_] := \ x\^5 + x\^4 + x\^2\)

and everything will work.
