After running this program it is showing error. I want to obtain the intersection point upto 8 decimal points using fzero function.
Error is given below.

There are 2 zeros, so consider limiting the search range to your desired x range.
y1=@(x) sin(x);
y2=@(x) x.^2-1;
fplot(y1)
hold on
fplot(y2)
hold off
z = fzero(@(x) y1(x)-y2(x),[0 pi/2])
z = 1.4096
