More Given/Find question. Thanks!

Hi All,

First I want to thank you all for your help.

I guess I am a bit pushing it there with this Given/Find question.

After you helped me with the initial Given/Find question I had, I tried to apply it to a little more complicated question.

This time there are six equations and six variables. The functions involved are basically the same as before.

I do believe the solution is right around where I specified the guess values.

But somehow the Given/Find function still return error.

Please see the attached worksheet.

Thanks a lot!!

Alex J

Hello!

Try to use function "Minerr" instead of "Find":

Re: More Given/Find question. Thanks!

It can't converge to a solution. Maybe you need different guesses, or maybe there is no solution.

As an aside, there is no point in the last two equations. If two variables are equal then just solve for one of them.
