Hi, I want to know how you would show less decimals in an equation and maybe move one part down a line to better fit the A4 format.
Solved! Go to Solution.
You should attach your Prime worksheet file, not only/just a picture.
The symbolic solver works best with symbols and non-magic numbers. Change all items in the equation to symbols, will give you a symbolic answer for RB, expressed in the other symbols. From there you can calculate the result numerically. See here:
(Lacking your worksheet I don't know all the values you put in...)
If you insist on using numerical values with a symbolic solve, change 1.5 to 3/2 and make sure that the values for v, VC, P and P2 are also exact (e.g. v=pi/6, etc). That should ensure that the symbolic solver will produce an exact answer.
Or you should do your solving numerically, using the root() function.
Success!

Be VERY careful with this approach. It actually reduces the number of digits that is calculated with, as shown here:
