Mukhtar,
On your second question...
With[{x = 2}, Plot[w, {q, 0, 1}]]
replaces every occurrence of x in the body of the With by 2. But there are
no occurrences of x in the body of the statement. So x never gets replaced.
The following would work.
With[{x = 2}, Plot[q^x, {q, 0, 1}]]
or (it's almost always better to define expressions as functions with
arguments)..
Clear[w]
w[q_, x_] := q^x
With[{x = 2}, Plot[w[q, x], {q, 0, 1}]]
On your first question it would be nice if you gave a more complete case.
What is f[x,y]? In any case NIntegrate should evaluate to a single value and
you haven't specified enough to do that. I think you want Integrate instead.
Also, you will probably want Set, instead of DelayedSet, for g and h,
otherwise FindRoot will have to keep repeating the integration and
differentiation (I think). In a case like that you should check out each
step at a time before putting all the steps together.

Very simple question. Is it possible in Mathematica 5 to execute this
code?
f[x_,y_]:=f[x,y] (*where f[x,y] is some known function*)
g[x_]:=NIntegrate[f[x,y],{y,0,1}]
h[x_]:=D[g[x],x]
FindRoot[h[x]==0,x]
I get a message that Integrand is not numeric and FindRoot stops. I would
like to make clear that I do not want to use Integrate.
My other question is why this code does not work
w=q^x;
With[{x=2},Plot[w,{q,0,1}]
Thanks. Mukhtar Bekkali
