RE: Problem with equation in Programming - DrD - 05-29-2015 10:29 PM There are two pertinent points: 1. The formula used in your program is not the same as the formula used to manually produce the values in your screenshot. The difference is in the paren's. 2. Local variables in HOME mode don't cross over to CAS mode as expected. That is why the snippet I sent (with GLOBAL variables) produces the same result as obtained in your screenshot; or, conversely, why your program isn't working as you expect. There are ways to get around this, such as by not mixing HOME and CAS program constructs, use of global variables, and possibly other means. You can work out the details from this information. RE: Problem with equation in Programming - DrD - 05-30-2015 12:08 PM This is closer to your original program, with output matching your screenshot: Code: ``` export So:=342,ar:=98,d:=20,t:=30;   //  Globals persist in HOME and CAS modes EXPORT prueba1() BEGIN   local Tc;    // Restricted to HOME mode   restart;     // Clears conflicting CAS vars and settings    HDigits:=2;  // Added for display convenience   A:=123;      //  Uses reserved variable   E:=234;      //  Uses reserved variable   S:=356;      //  Uses reserved variable // LOCAL d,ar,So,t,S; // LOCAL E,A,Tc; // A:=123;  //  Don't mix local and reserved variables // d:=20;   //  Don't mix local HOME and CAS variables // t:=30;   //  Don't mix local HOME and CAS variables // S:=356;  //  Don't mix local and reserved variables // E:=234;  //  Don't mix local and reserved variables // ar:=98;  //  Don't mix local HOME and CAS variables // So:=342; //  Don't mix local HOME and CAS variables  // Tc:=CAS.solve("A=d*(15-t)*S*E-x+(((ar^2)*So^2)*S*E)/(24*x^2)","x");  // List result doesn't match screenshot from post   Tc:=solve("A=d*(15-t)*S*E-x+(ar^2*So*E)/(24*x^2)","x");  // List matches screenshot from post.               msgbox("Solution: " + string(Tc));  // Convert list to string object  END;```
