## Problem with solving square equation!

Hi everyone!

I have square equation, and I have to find x, so I use solve function and find 2 values of x, for example, positive x and negative x. Then I have to use that x in further equations, but only positive value of x.

Maybe someone could tell me how can I make that mathcad will use only positive x value in further equations and ignore negative?

Please look a file in attachment!

Thank you!

Hello!

Use the symbolic operator "assume" (in our case: "assume, x> 0"): The operator "assume" can be found on a toolbar "Symbolic": 7 REPLIES 7  Emerald II

Another way but not as elegant as Valdimir's solution.

Another slightly different way, see x2.
