An equation that hp prime can't solve
Hello everyone, I am back. I recently encountered a system of equations, hp prime not only can not solve the exact solution, even the numerical solution can not be solved.
Code: f:=(λ,μ)>(λ^4+λ^3*μ^2+λ^2*μ^2+λ^2*μ+λ^2+λ*μ^4+λ*μ^2+3*λ*μ*sqrt(λ^4+4*λ^3*μ+4*λ^3+2*λ^2*μ^2+4*λ^2*μ+2*λ^2+4*λ*μ^3+4*λ*μ^2+4*λ*μ+4*λ+μ^4+4*μ^3+2*μ^2+4*μ+1)+μ^3+μ)/(λ^3*μ+λ*μ^3+λ*μ);fsolve([(∂(f(x,y),x))=0,(∂(f(x,y),y))=0],[x,y]) But when x=1, y=1 is indeed a set of solutions to the equation. In fact we can test it Code: simplify((∂(f(x,y),x))x=1,y=1);simplify((∂(f(x,y),y))x=1,y=1) PHP Code: Is this not a BUG? Looking forward to the first firmware release in 2019, I hope CAS will be updated to 1.5129 study hard, improve every day

It is most likely the user's fault due to not understanding the calculator or not entering the input correctly. I was able to solve this problem using my HP 50g, a calculator I know VERY well. I understand how it works and I know what tools to use. See the screenshot titled "Proof" to see that I actually solved it with my HP 50g.

Now, I will help you on how to solve this with your HP Prime. After playing around with this equation (what a pain to enter in), the problem most likely lies with using a function ( the f(x,y) part) with the differentiate command. The 50g spits out a symbolic answer when I use the DERIV command on the f(x,y). See pictures #1 & #2. But when I attempt this on Prime, I get something I do not understand. See picture #3. So try to derive the function and get a symbolic answer, like my 50g. Maybe then fsolve() will work. Unfortunately for you, I cannot tell you exactly what to do to get the answer because I am not good at using the HP Prime. That being said, keep working on it and good luck!!

RE: An equation that hp prime can't solve
fsolve works best if you give it a starting point. If:
PHP Code: (f(λ,μ)) := (λ^4+λ^3*μ^2+λ^2*μ^2+λ^2*μ+λ^2+λ*μ^4+λ*μ^2+3*λ*μ*sqrt(λ^4+4*λ^3*μ+4*λ^3+2*λ^2*μ^2+4*λ^2*μ+2*λ^2+4*λ*μ^3+4*λ*μ^2+4*λ*μ+4*λ+μ^4+4*μ^3+2*μ^2+4*μ+1)+μ^3+μ)/(λ^3*μ+λ*μ^3+λ*μ); then fsolve({dfx = 0,dfy = 0},{x,y},{1.1,1.1}) returns {1.,1.}. I gave up waiting for solve([dfx=0,dfy=0],[x,y]) to return an answer. road
