EXAMPLE

least:  0.3248357625526726343272168905918357...

greatest: 1.52794989469861441964924475246801...

MATHEMATICA

a = 10; 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]    (* A201422 *)

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

RealDigits[r]    (* A201423 *)
