Find the intersection of y=x1 and y=sin(x) 
20091010 

From Usama: There are many modern calculators and softwares that can plot the functions.
I have two very simple equations y=x1 and y=sin(x), if i draw them manually on paper i can not get the accurate value.
But i think a computer can easily draw perfect straight and curve lines so it should be easy to find the intersection point of two lines.
Is there any way or software that can tell the exact value of intersection point of two lines? Answered by Robert Dawson and Harley Weston.
