Do you mean $$\int_0^{20}x^{2} dx$$ ? That's not an equation, it's just an expression. To evaluate an expression, just type it into Home or CAS; this one evaluates to 8000/3. The Solve app is for solving equations. If I misunderstood your question, what equation you want to solve?

In Solve App this seems to work okay (using Home variables X, T and the math template): [attachment=959] In CAS, you can use solve(), fsolve() to get a numerical or symbolic result [attachment=960] RE: Integral in solve - Tim Wessman - 07-14-2014 04:37 PM (07-13-2014 06:05 PM)lrdheat Wrote:  How would I set up an integral in solve app to, say, have integral x^2 from 0 to y = 20? This works fine. However, if you tried this and it didn't work, it is probably because you accidentally did x^2d(x=20) instead of (x^2)dx =20 Make sure you press the right arrow once after to move out of the variable of integration template location before your =20.

It may be expressed for int(x^2,x,0,y)=20... It's an Integral equation and is easily solved in Solve App! RE: Integral in solve - lrdheat - 07-15-2014 02:09 AM I've tried the syntax (and other variations) suggested by Anderson, Tim, and CR. In each case, when I go into Num template and submit a guess, I get "bad guess(es)". Could I be in an odd operating mode?

I get the same :/ that's why I said it was not solvable in that app. I tried with int and with the template too.

If you're using Textbook Entry mode, you have to press right-cursor between typing dX and typing =20.
