I want to create a method that calculates the root of a function of my choice. So far i have:

```
private static int function(int n){
int root;
for(int i = 0; i<=100; i++){
/**
i want to replace the x(see below to see the equation) value with i,
untill the equation(n) == 0 and then use the i value and return it as an
integer variable called 'root'
**/
}
return root;
}
