I tried to solve an equation symbolically. I dont know why it doesnt work. The solution must be simple, same as the numerical one with one extra unknown. Can someone please take a look. I tried different methods.

Solved! Go to Solution.

You forgot to specify the number of decimal places for the symbolic operator "**float, n**".

No, I did not forgot, I was lazy and used the default (which is 20, if you don't specify a number).

BTW, its not the number of decimal places but the number of significant digits.
