Hey guys/and girls

I have a problem with solving logarithmic equations simultaneously with my Classpad. I'm using 3.02 OS.

When I try to solve the?following eqations simultaneously:

0 = A ln(4-B )

18 = A ln(6-B )

I can't seem to get a useful?decimal answer...

I tried solving them both going throgh Action>Advanced>Solve and using the simultaneous equation solving function in 2D.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

first of all, I don't know why the classpad shouldn't be able to solve this, but I think the advanced> solve command is meant for single equations, not simultaneous?? I'm not sure about this, I don't often use the CP to solve them.

Second of all, isn't this a trivially easy case to be bringing the full might of a CAS to bear on? If you look at the first equation it's clear that either A must be 0, or ln(4- must be 0. Since A cannot be 0 otherwise it would invalidate the second equation, then B must be 3.

Rearrange the second equation with B=3, and you get the answer for A....

I think it's probably quicker that way than to bother to type it into any computer :-)

I'm here just to say an

Solving "~=e^(~)" take more time than "Ln(~)=~"!

**unrelated**observation:Solving "~=e^(~)" take more time than "Ln(~)=~"!

hello,

the new O.S v.3.03 solves this type of problems,

type: solve({A*ln(4-B=0,A*ln(6-B=18},{A,B})

you will get the ans.

{A=18/ln(3), B=3}.

It's a great improvement!

Well done CASIO!
