Circular functions

I'm attempting to solve a function, but this function id dependent on
itself. Everytime I attempt to solve, excel tells me that I'm solving
a circular function. When I attempt to iterate the function, I get
div/0 in the cell.

Does anyone know how to solve this type of functions?

You'll have to be a bit more specific on what formulas/functions you're
trying to solve. Include details about values of input cells, results you
expect, etc.

You don't give enough information about your function to hazard a guess,
but you can see the mechanics of setting up an intentional circular
