# REPEATED SOLUTION OF A SOLVE BLOCK

## REPEATED SOLUTION OF A SOLVE BLOCK

(OP)

I am entirely self-taught in Mathcad; accordingly, there are a number of gaps in my knowledge. One such is that I do not know whether it is possible to automate the repeated solution of a solve block. Hopefully the attachment shows what I would like to do.

I would like to create an array, FIB of nine values by solving the equation for each pair of 'p' & 't'. I have a notion that I should be able to set up a loop to do it, but I can't figure out how.

Is it possible to achieve my objective? I can set up the equation nine times, but that approach is not particularly elegant and does not lend itself to significantly larger problems.

Thanks in anticipation.

### RE: REPEATED SOLUTION OF A SOLVE BLOCK

You can simply assign the find() to a function, i.e., func(x,y,z):=find(theta). This effectively converts the entire given-find solve block into a function that can be called anywhere further down the sheet, and can be called from within a program loop.

Thanks, IRstuff. Your description looks just like what Occupant posted as a pdf of a Mathcad page...
