Solving Transcendental Equations ~ sin(x)/x

Hi all, I am trying to solve this transcendental eqn for a class project. I only know Matlab basics and I am having trouble figuring out what is not working.
Ideally I would solve this for p = [0 3*pi/2 3*pi/10 1000] and then plot(x,y)
Thanks for any help Eric
