Dissolving equation

Dissolving equation

Dissolving equation


first of all: Sorry for my bad english. I hope you can understand my topic.

In MathCAD I want to solve a relatively complex equation with at least two unknowns.

The equation has got the following style: x + y + a = b, with a and b as constants.

Now I want to dissolve to x or y. After command "...solve,x -> q" MathCAD notices "No Solution found". I think the equation is too complex.

So is there any other possibility to compute x or y after defining one of them?

Here the link to the equation: http://www.bilder-space.de/bilder/bcab74-1278433362.jpg

Thanks for help.

so long...


RE: Dissolving equation

I used the symbolic solver because I don`t know any other...

Which solver should I use better?

I don`t need the solved equation necessarily. I need to know the solution of one of the variables depending on the equation by defining the other variable on my own.

Why don't you post your question here and download your picture?

RE: Dissolving equation

How can you solve for two variables with only one equation?
