Full Version: user variables in SOLVE
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
When I use user variables in "SOLVE" application, the prime couldn't solve 3 variables 3 equations.
what could be the reason?
example: 1)Are=pi * di 2) vo=are * st* n 3) de= vo/tt
The reason is that we screwed up.

In the current version of the software, user defined variables don't play nicely in the "solve" app. It solves correctly, but when it reaches the step to store the value back into the variable by name, it incorrectly only looks for built in names and doesn't find the user created ones. Sad

You can get around this for now by either just using A-Z, or else use the ""fsolve" command on the CAS screen. "fsolve" is what the solve app uses internally.
There is a conflict within the applications and external definitions from HOME or CAS. when defining A, B, ... X, Y, ... as 0, in some cases the results are not as expected. I think the only solution to avoid this problem is the one made by the classpad calculator, that is, to leave the variables A, B, ... X, Y, ... free, and use some alternatives A, B, ... X, in bold as user variables

example of the conflict of variables
That's funny, I am new to Prime, but user variables are working for me in my SOLVER Apps. Is this issue only for simultaneous equations?
