I used to solve some equations in the calculator that were a little bit confusing to solve by hand; it only took few seconds to do that. Now, it's taking more than 2 minutes or so to solve the exact same equations I used to solve before!! why is that? is there a way to take back to how it was?

Hello,

Put fresh batteries (main batteries)

Clear the RAM of junk variables and programs that clutter it" [2nd][MEM][F1][1:All memory]

Brush up on you calculator skills: shortcuts, command syntax for the commands you want to use; and start again. It might seem faster.

And no (The myth of the Paradise Lost has been with humanity since the beginings of time) if calculator has grown old there is not much you can do about it.

Hope it helps.

This calculator does not have an equation solving routine. You will have to solve it by hand. Try to guess what number, which added to 2 gives a sum of 3? You have it! x=1

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.

The FX-901 calculator seems to be the equivalent of the FX 260 Solar sold in North America. It does fraction calculations, permutation, statistics but lack the Equation Solver.

You cannot use it to solve equations.

Casio Scientific calculators that can handle equation solving are the FX-115 and FX-991.

Simplify your first equation by dividing all its terms by 3, then use elimination to carry out the solution by hand.

You can solve equations two ways: The EQN computational mode or the SOLVE application.

IN the EQN mode you can solve linear equations in one, two and three unknowns; the quadratic equation; and the cubic equation.

Enter the EQN mode by following the instructions on the following screen capture. Press 5:EQN

You have three types of equations.

Once you select the type of equations, a template is displayed where you enter the relevant coefficients.

Under each label (a, b, etc. ) enter a coefficient and press ENTER to move to the next. With a cubic equation, or a linear equation in 3 unknowns, you have to use the Right arrow to display the cells where you enter the value of d.

After you input all necessary coefficients press the = sign to get the solution.

To use the SOLVE feature, see the screen capture that follows. It comes from the Casio manual.

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.

This calculator does not support matrix equations/operations. You can either purchase a more expensive calculator with matrix functions, or you can do it by hand. Here is a basic tutorial on matrices: http://www.miislita.com/information-retrieval-tutorial/matrix-tutorial-2-matrix-operations.html

The TI-83 Plus is a calculator which will do matrix manipulation and is easily found used on sites like eBay.

This calculator cannot handle matrices that have anyone dimension larger than 3.

How to solve your problem?

use a computer program devoted to solving linear equations

OR buy another calculator that can handle larger systems of equations (a graphing calculator, maybe).

How to solve your problem?

- Set up the problem by hand (pencil paper): use Cramer's rules. Make use of the calculator to perform the various calculation.

- Sacrifice one equation which you will use to eliminate one variable of the 4 by expressing it in terms of the other three. Do the algebra to obtain a system of 3 equations in three unknowns.
- Use the calculator to find the solutions ( the three variables that are left).
- Use the 4th equation (the one you scacrificed) to obtain the value of the 4th unknown.

Hello,

Sorry this calculator cannot solve equations. It does not have the program. It does not know how to do those things. However it can calculate.**Before you can use the calculator you must prepare all yourself. **When you have solved the problem, you ask the calculator to compute the value of what you found.

Let us clean the equation a bit

2(x-4) -5x=-5

Get rid of the parentheses 2(x-4) becomes 2x-2*4=2x-8 .Put that result where it was in equation

2x-8 -5x=-5

Group together the terms that have x in them 2x-5x=-3x

Then

2x-8-5x=-5, becomes -3x-8=-5

You want to isolate the term with x (have it on one side, and the others on the other side) -3x= -5 -(-8)= -5+8 =3.

The equation becomes

-3x=3 Thus**-x=3/3=1 and x=-1.**

**In general you would have obtained x= (some number/some other number) and that is where the calculator would intervene.**

Hope it helps.

Hello,

Let us assume you have two simultaneous linear equations :

**a_1*x+ b_1*y+c_1=0**

a_2*x +b_2*y+c_2=0

where a_1, a_2, b_1, b_2, c_1,c_2 are coefficients (numerical or algebraic).

The problem is to obtain the particular values of the unknowns x and y for which the two equations are both satisfied: If you substitute the particular values of x and y you find in any of the two equations you discover that both equalities are true.

A small system of equations like the one above can be solved by some very simple algorithms (elimination, substitution, combination) which can be carried out by hand.

The solution of large systems of linear equations can be sought by making use of the concepts of matrices (plural of matrix), determinants, and certain rules called Cramer's rules.

Due to its repetitive nature, the algorithm ( a well defined, limited sequence of steps) is suitable for a calculating machine (computer or calculator).

Certain calculators have, embedded in their ROM, a program that solves linear systems of simultaneous equations. Usually you are asked to enter the values of the coefficients a_1, etc. in a set order, then you press ENTER or EXE (Casio) . If a solution exits (not all linear systems have solutions) the calculator displays it.

Hope that satisfies your curiosity.
