Solve a System of complex equatoins
Hey everyone, new here obviously. Just purchased an HP Prime, coming from a TI89. Still trying to get used to the new syntax and commands.
How do I solve a system of complex equations? such as; 12+(i4+i5)*Ai3*B (12+i6)*Bi3*A In the ti8 it was csolve( {12+(i4+i5)*Ai3*B,(12+i6)*Bi3*A},{A,B} ) But this is not the case with the HP Prime. Thoughts? Thank you!

In CAS: try
fsolve({12+(4*+5*)*A3**B,(12+6*)*B3**A},{'A','B'}) [/code]

What is the significance of i4, i5, etc? Is it something specific or just "a variable"?
TW Although I work for the HP calculator group, the views and opinions I post here are my own.

csolve should work. Beware that fsolve is approx.

Please first note those are not equations, also important : on cas, you must use lowercase variable, I added "=0" to have equations, and tried it : csolve({12+(4i+5i)*a3i*b=0, (12+6i)*b3i*a=0}, {a,b}) I got { (168i)/(512i) , 4i/(512*i) } primer

Not necessary. I used capital letter "A" & "B" with csolve in CAS mode on the HP Prime and got the same answer as Primer.

RE: Solve a System of complex equatoins
Perhaps not necessary but perhaps it should. Expressions aren't equations, evaluating is not solving, etc.
I wouldn't mind if functions like the various *solve functions would generate an exception when being given an expression rather than an equation... It might actually prevent a lot of user errors at the "expense" of a trivial amount of overhead.

Standard syntax in EE is to use j followed by the quantity of said unit, in this case, Ohms. Thank you everyone for your input. I am just trying to get used to the different syntax. In the 89, variables were variables, you put in x, it returns x, unless a value is stored in said variable. In the Prime, you put in A, or X, it returns 0 because nothing is stored in it. So sometimes it's hard to check to see if an equation simplifies correctly.

RE: Solve a System of complex equatoins
Most HP solvers, including cSolve, assume "=0" if the input expression is not an equation. You don't have to include it yourself. Prime's help screen for cSolve even says so explicitly:

The solvers treat "=" as "" and solve the resulting expression (which is not an equation) for equality to zero. That being the case, it's more efficient for both the user and the calculator to omit "=0" from the input. <0ɸ0> Joe

And a C programmer would probably argue that "!= 0" must have been omitted :)
