Question about Casio FX-115ES Scientific Calculator

How do i solve the rational equation for example x/8=8/x

Ad

You do not need a calculator for this proportion.

For a proportion a/b=c/d, the product of the extrems (a*d) is equal to the product of the means (b*c).

In your case x*x=8*8 or x^2=64.

The two solutions are x=+square root (64) or x=-square root(64).

For a less trivial equation, you can use the **solve** feature of the FX-119ES. To do so, use the ALPHA keyboard to enter your equation; once the equation is typed in, do not press the main equal sign, but the Solve key (the key is located near the top left corner of the keyboard). You will be prompted to solve for X?.

Hello,

You must first eliminate the denominators by reducing the different expressions to the same denominators. Use the distributivity property of multiplication to expand your terms. Gather similar monomials. Do all the cleaning to reduce your equation to one of the 2 types that the calculator can handle.[Mode][5:EQN] [3: ax2+bx+c] or [4:ax3+bx2+cx+d]

**Remember :Any solution that makes one of the original denominators equal 0 must be rejected.**

**Hope it helps.**

Your scientific calculator is unable to solve complex equation with complex coefficients. You should try to solve by hand directly using the quadratic formula or by factoring the polynomial in z

failing that, another way would be to set z=x+iy, substitute this for z, carry out the algebra and try to separate real and imaginary parts. But your two equations will constitute a system of two quadratic equations. I am not aware of any general method to solve coupled nonlinear equations.

Good luck.

- You have several memory locations you can use to store values in them. The memory locations are A,B,C,D, M, X, and Y. You use [SHIFT][RCL] and one of the variable names above. Example store 78 in C location: 78 [SHIFT] [RCL] [HYP]. To recall that value press [RCL] [HYP]

- If you want to use the EQN (equation solving mode, press [MODE][5:EQN] then select the equation type . For example [3:aX^2+bX+c=0] will display a template wher you input the three coefficients.

- You can also enter any type of equation and solve it with the SOLVE command. In that case you use the keyboard to enter the expression (see above how to enter variable name X). To type in the equal sign (=) use [ALPHA][ CALC]. Once the whole equation is typed in, press [SHIFT[ [SOLVE], and the calculator will prompt SOLVE for X? Confirm and press the main = sign. Press = again to get a second, a third root (if any)

Do you really need a calculator to solve a linear equation?

Let us see how to solve it without a calculator.

Remove the parentheses fronm the second term on the left : y-3

Use the distributive property on the last term on the right side -2y-6

Take the term -3 to the right side, changing its sign in the process (becomes +3)

Take the -2y term to the left making it +2y.

3y +2y=18+3-6 or 5y=15 and the answer is straightforward .

As to your Casio FX300ES, it cannot solve equations because it does not have an EQUATION calculation mode. The Casios FX-115ES and FX-991ES have an Equation Mode. If you use any of the two to solve an equation in one variable (linear, quadratic or other) the unknown is taken to be x by default. You would have to change the name of the variable from y to x.

Press key Mode, first select option 5:EQN (by pressing key 5), then option 2: a_nX+b_nY+c_nZ=d_n (by pressin 2).

Now input coefficients from equations in table (each column is for one variable), just type in number and press =, then use arrows to move to another cell.

Press MODE 5 to bring up the equation types. Press 3 for the quadratic. Enter the three coefficients. Press = to see the first root. If the display shows x1 then press down to see the other other root. If the display only shows x then that's a double root. Given the two roots x1 and x2, the factors of the quadratic are (x-x1) and (x-x2).

This calculator doesn't really support a solver like that. You can use Woflram Alpha to solve equations like that really quickly. Example

There are more expensive calculators that will solve these types of equations, but I would recommend just using Wolfram Alpha whenever you need a solution to a math problem.

Set Computational mode to EQN by pressing [MODE][5:EQN]

Select the type of equations you want to solve

Select the relevant otion and get ready to type in the coefficients (the a's, the b's, the c's etc`.)

For more general non-linear equations, use the SOLVE feature.
