## "Find" Output Notation

(OP)

I have a simple question regarding the mathematical syntax of my "Find" output. I am trying to solve a system of three equations symbolically and I am getting a parametric conditional solution I believe. The mathematical syntax is not exactly clear to me (although I am a newbie to the Mathcad world). Please see the attached. Thanks

## RE: "Find" Output Notation

Nonetheless, you appear to be adding a program to the Find? Have you read the help file? It explains what you need to do, and even has a live example.

I have included the actual file. My ultimate goal is to obtain the three unknowns symbolically. Thanks.

## RE: "Find" Output Notation

You should expect to get an infinite number of solutions, because of theta.

Seems to me that this particular problem is rather easy to solve by hand and not worth grinding away with the symbolic solver.

## RE: "Find" Output Notation

You are not answering my question, my question is what exactly does the Mathcad syntax mean? I understand the linear alegbra, but I am not understanding the "_t1 - _t4" variables output by Mathcad.

A simple answer to my question would be appreciated and not a condescending remark about common sense.

## RE: "Find" Output Notation

This is not a homework problem. My goal is the determination of an applied force's angle of action. In reality there are multiple points of contact and the problem is indeterminate so I was attempting to use Mathcad to iterate to a solution symbolically if possible. The attached file was a simplification of my actual problem. It appears I have not posed my question properly.
