The obvious way to get around this particular error message
would be to use say x and y for the limits of integration then
solve for b and e using Solve or NSolve. That is, use FindRoot
with NIntegrate[f[s], {s, x, y}] to find suitable values for x
and y. Then b will be c(x+y)/2 and e will be c(y-x)/2.
However, I am not sure this will be all that useful. My guess is
there are an infinite number of pairs for any given f[s] that
will cause the definite integral to have a specific value. This
is clearly true for the simple f[s]:= 1 since the integral
becomes simply the difference between the integration limits.
