Hi!
I want to find the roots of Jacobi Polynomials with Mathematica 5.0. I know the exact solution of the polynomials. The exact(almost)roots are {-0.98788350, 0.9536176565,......,0.9897501745}

When I use the Solve as;

Solve[JacobiP[20,0.407226,0.592774,x]==0,x]

the roots are with Mathematica:
{-0.987983, -0.953301, ...........,0.989733}

so how can I increase the accuracy?
Please help me!
I am waiting for your help...
