## Solving Problem

11-16-2018 07:58 AM

Hello

My HP Prime Graphing Calculator solves solve(x^3+e^x - 1 = 0,x) WRONG.

I dont know the problem but the solution is "x=0".

Does anybody know how to solve this problem?

Hi!, @Jabbapav :

With the Wolfram Alpha, the result is ...

In the HP PRIME ...

1) Select the option Apps Solve ...

Now, write the equation ...

Press ...

The result, is same what Wolfram Alpha and is = 0.

If press, Solve, you can obtein the result.

You're Welcome !.

What happens if there is more than 0 Solution for X/Y?

For Example:

f1: 3x^2 + 12y

f2: 12x + 24y^2

Solution: (0,0) & (-2,-1)

When solve switches to fsolve and I get a near zero result (such as a 1E-15), I try to encourage the solver.

I often try setting a guess or interval using the notation x=guess or min..max, or I try to set the iterative algorithm (method). The fsolve help has more info.

fsolve((x^3+e^x-1) = 0,x = 0) ---> 0

fsolve((x^3+e^x-1) = 0,x,newton_solver) ---> 0
