An important question about many functions concerns the existence and location of fixed points.  A fixed point of f is a value of x that satisfies the equation f(x) = x.  In other words, it corresponds to a point at which the graph of f intersections the line y = x.  Find all the fixed points of the following function.  Use preliminary analysis and graphing to determine good initial approximations. f(x) = 17x cos x on [0,2] Use comma to separate answers as needed. Round to six decimal places as needed.
