EXAMPLE

least:  0.3435193844487517285157937916054768...

greatest: 1.52286717667793005738690747334562...

MATHEMATICA

a = 9; c = 0;

f[x_] := a*x^2 + c; g[x_] := Sec[x]

Plot[{f[x], g[x]}, {x, 0, Pi/2}, {AxesOrigin -> {0, 0}}]

r = x /. FindRoot[f[x] == g[x], {x, .3, .4}, WorkingPrecision -> 110]

RealDigits[r]     (* A201420 *)

r = x /. FindRoot[f[x] == g[x], {x, 1.5, 1.6}, WorkingPrecision -> 110]

RealDigits[r]    (* A201421 *)
