Fixed point example
A graph of a function with three fixed points

A value x is a fixed point of a function f if and only if f(x) = x.

Examples

1 is a fixed point of x^2 because 1^2 = 1. Some functions do not have fixed points. For example x + 1 does not have one because x + 1 is never equal to x.
