Hello Shubha,
it's stiill not clear to me what you are trying to do.
You write: "I'm trying to obtain the values for x1 and x2." What values ? What should these values satisfy ? Should they satisfy f1(x1)=0 and f2(x2)=0 ?
You write: "x1 and x2 are dependent on each other." How ? Can you give the function how they depend on each other ?
Best wishes Torsten.
