Hi, it would be a great help if Mathsgroup members can show me how to code the following problem in mathematica: Say I have a function defined as: f[a_, b_] = Integrate[Sin[x] + 3, {x, a, b}] I can find b with given constant=2 and initial value=0: In[1]:= Initialvalue = 0; s1 = FindRoot[f[0, unknown] == 2, {unknown, Initialvalue}]; x1 = Part[s1, 1, 2] Now, using the x1 value obtained from FindRoot, I can find x2: s2 = FindRoot[f[x1, unknown] == 2, {unknown, Initialvalue}]; x2 = Part[s2, 1, 2] How can i do it for n times (to get xn in a list form) with given initial value as: initialvalue= {initialvalue1,initialvalue2, ....,initialvalue3} whereby each xi will get initialvalue[[i]].
