Table of n, a(n) for n=1..100.

PROG

(Other) For 1 <= n <= 4 use: x=4.4;

starting value of x for the iteration n=1;

n may be 1 or 2 or 3 or 4, but no higher tad=10^(-110);

or other precision of your choice \p120;

or enter this manually in PARI/gp dx=0.001;

arbitrary starting iteration step value while(x, dif=tan(x)-x^n;

if(x>(3.*Pi/2.), print("error; x out of range", x); break);

if(dx<tad, print(x); write(filenam, x); break);

filnam is your filename if(dif<0, x=x+dx; next);

if(dif>0, x=x-dx; dx=dx/10; next)) For n > 4, do all of the following: In line 1, change the starting value of x to 1.0; in line 2, change the value of n to any integer > 4; in the next-to-last line, change the "less than" symbol to "greater than"; in the last line, change the "greater than" symbol to "less than"; in the line containing the string "3.*Pi/2.", delete the "3.*" part.
