## Solve MathCad Prime Equation

As resol for as equações para encontrar o valor de x e eu sou novo no mathCad Eu uso o MathCad Prime 5.

1 ACCEPTED SOLUTION

## Re: Solve MathCad Prime Equation Furthermore you have to consider that x^2 = 36 has two solution! Not only x=6 but also x=-6.

So you will get four solution pairs.

But as you have squared (which is no equivalence transformation) you may get "solutions" which aren't solution to the original problem and you have to filter out those wrong solutions and only the one pair which Prime came up with from the beginning should be left. As you limit your manual calculation to just three decimals I won't expect too much precision - probably no more than one decimal.

## Re: Solve MathCad Prime Equation

You may learn a lot from the help. OK, Mathcad's help sure was better structurized and easier to follow than Prime's help is, but I guess you still can profit by the examples given there. And when I look back how I started with Mathcad a long time ago it was by doing, trial and error, using the help and most importantly reading a lot in the old collab forum. Unfortunately, this forum here is just a poor imitation of it, but it's all we have left and hopefully still is of some use to you.

Furthermore a while ago PTC shared some worksheets for free which may also help you on the way. They withdrawed some of them, asking for money now, but some of them still are freely downloadable from this forum (but hard to find unless you know what to look for, I guess).

Here is the overview page

https://community.ptc.com/t5/PTC-Mathcad/PTC-Mathcad-All-Worksheets/td-p/450684

and here is kind of a tutorial you may find useful

https://community.ptc.com/t5/PTC-Mathcad/Calculate-and-Communicate-with-PTC-Mathcad-Prime-3-0/m-p/44...

Good luck and free feel to use this forum for asking in case you get stuck.
