## 2 Answers 2

You can use Ryacas to get the solution as an expression of x :

As you can see, the solution is t=2 (assuming x is not zero).

Let's try a less trivial example:

If you want to get a function which provides the solution as a function of x , you can do:

You might be looking for optimize:

If you need more help, I need a reproductible example.

## Solving Linear Equations

Michael friendly and john fox.

- \(\mathbf{A}\) is an \(m \times n\) matrix of coefficients for \(m\) equations in \(n\) unknowns
- \(\mathbf{x}\) is an \(n \times 1\) vector unknowns, \(x_1, x_2, \dots x_n\)
- \(\mathbf{b}\) is an \(m \times 1\) vector of constants, the “right-hand sides” of the equations

The general conditions for solutions are:

- the solution is unique if \(r( \mathbf{A} | \mathbf{b}) = r( \mathbf{A}) = n\)
- the solution is underdetermined if \(r( \mathbf{A} | \mathbf{b}) = r( \mathbf{A}) < n\)
- the equations are inconsistent (no solutions) if \(r( \mathbf{A} | \mathbf{b}) > r( \mathbf{A})\)

## Equations in two unknowns

## Two consistent equations

Solve() is a convenience function that shows the solution in a more comprehensible form:

## Three consistent equations

Geometrically, this means that all three lines intersect in a point.

## Three inconsistent equations

Three equations in two unknowns are inconsistent when \(r(\mathbf{A}) < r(\mathbf{A | b})\) .

Solve() shows this more explicitly:

An approximate solution is sometimes available using a generalized inverse.

## Equations in three unknowns

Are the equations consistent? No.

## Solve System of Equations in R (3 Examples) | Using solve() Function

## Example 1: Basic Application of solve() Function in R

In this Example, I’ll illustrate how to apply the solve function to a single equation in R.

Let’s assume we want to solve the equation: 3x = 12 . Then we can use the following R code:

solve(3, 12) # Applying solve # 4

The RStudio console returns the value 4, i.e. x = 4 .

## Example 2: Applying solve Function to Complex System of Equations

Then we can specify these equations in a right-hand side matrix …

Afterwards, we can apply the solve function to these matrices:

solve(mat_a1, mat_b1) # Applying solve to matrices # [,1] # [1,] 7.2 # [2,] -21.0

The previous output of the RStudio console shows our result: x = 7.2; y = -21 .

## Example 3: Using Identity Matrix as Right-hand Side of Linear System

Let’s do this in practice: First, we have to create another example matrix in R:

Now, we can solve this matrix (i.e. computing the inverse) by using the solve function as follows:

The previous output shows the inverse of our input matrix.

## How to Solve an Algebraic Expression

Last Updated: February 24, 2023 References

## Understanding the Basics

- You can see that each coefficient can be divisible by 3. Just "factor out" the number 3 by dividing each term by 3 to get your simplified equation.
- 3x/3 + 15/3 = 9x/3 + 30/3 =
- x + 5 = 3x + 10

- (3 + 5) 2 x 10 + 4
- First, follow P, the operation in the parentheses:
- = (8) 2 x 10 + 4
- Then, follow E, the operation of the exponent:
- = 64 x 10 + 4
- Next, do multiplication:
- And last, do addition:

## Solve an Algebraic Equation

- First, subtract 12 from both sides.
- 2x 2 + 12 -12 = 44 -12 =
- Next, divide both sides by 2.
- 2x 2 /2 = 32/2 =
- Solve by taking the square root of both sides, since that will turn x 2 into x.
- √x 2 = √16 =
- State both answers:x = 4, -4

- First, cross multiply to get rid of the fraction. You have to multiply the numerator of one fraction by the denominator of the other.
- (x + 3) x 3 = 2 x 6 =
- Now, combine like terms. Combine the constant terms, 9 and 12, by subtracting 9 from both sides.
- 3x + 9 - 9 = 12 - 9 =
- Isolate the variable, x, by dividing both sides by 3 and you've got your answer.
- 3x/3 = 3/3 =

- First, move everything that isn't under the radical sign to the other side of the equation:
- √(2x+9) = 5
- Then, square both sides to remove the radical:
- (√(2x+9)) 2 = 5 2 =
- Now, solve the equation as you normally would by combining the constants and isolating the variable:
- 2x = 25 - 9 =

- |4x +2| - 6 = 8 =
- |4x +2| = 8 + 6 =
- |4x +2| = 14 =
- 4x + 2 = 14 =
- Now, solve again by flipping the sign of the term on the other side of the equation after you've isolated the absolute value:
- 4x + 2 = -14
- 4x = -14 -2
- 4x/4 = -16/4 =
- Now, just state both answers: x = -4, 3

## Algebra Topics: Solving Equations

/en/algebra-topics/simplifying-expressions/content/

## Solving equations

Sound complicated? We'll break it down to make it easier. Let's look at an example:

## Cancelling out with inverse operations

Now we are left with this equation:

Watch the video below to see this example problem solved.

## Multi-step equations

Let's look at another example:

First, we'll subtract 12 from both sides:

Finally, we'll divide. 56/8 = 7

We're done! This means for 4(2x + 3) = 68, x has to equal 7.

Simplify this expression to find the value of x :

Because 6 and x are being multiplied , we can cancel out the 6 by doing the opposite: dividing .

6 x / 6 is x and 66 / 6 is 11 , so x = 11 . We're done!

Let's try another problem. Simplify for y .

Because 12 and y are being multiplied , we can cancel out the 12 by dividing .

12 y / 12 is y , and 36 / 12 is 3 . We did it: y equals 3 .

Try solving the next few problems on your own. The answers are below.

## Longer equations

Let's try the problem from the top of the page: 3 x - 24 ⋅ 2 = 8 x + 2 .

We're done! x is equal to -10 .

Now it's your turn. Try simplifying these longer expressions.

Solve for k . (Hint: your final answer will be a fraction.)

## Equations with more than one variable

Sometimes you might see an equation with more than one variable, like this one:

Solve for s . (Hint: your final answer will be a fraction with a denominator of r .)

## Checking your work

We found that y was equal to 3 . Let's see if we got the answer right.

We'll follow the order of operations, with parentheses first. 3 ⋅ 3 is 9 , and 9 - 8 is 1 .

Now that we've simplified the parentheses, all we have to do is multiply 4 times 1 .

4 ⋅ 1 is 4 . Both sides of our equation are equal, so our answer is correct!

First, we'll replace the variable x with 4 .

Now we need to simplify the right side: 23 + 4 is 27 .

Want to check that last problem again? This time, check it with x = 5 .

Check this problem. Is u = 6 the correct answer? If not, what is?

Check this problem. Is v = 5 the correct answer? If not, what is?

Check this problem. Is w = 8 the correct answer? If not, what is?

## Equation Solver

Enter the Equation you want to solve into the editor.

Please ensure that your password is at least 8 characters and contains each of the following:

## Solving Equations

An equation says that two things are equal. It will have an equals sign "=" like this:

what is on the left (x − 2) equals what is on the right (4)

So an equation is like a statement " this equals that "

## What is a Solution?

A Solution is a value we can put in place of a variable (such as x ) that makes the equation true .

## Example: x − 2 = 4

When we put 6 in place of x we get:

How about other values for x ?

- For x=5 we get "5−2=4" which is not true , so x=5 is not a solution .
- For x=9 we get "9−2=4" which is not true , so x=9 is not a solution .

In this case x = 6 is the only solution.

You might like to practice solving some animated equations .

## More Than One Solution

There can be more than one solution.

## Example: (x−3)(x−2) = 0

When we gather all solutions together it is called a Solution Set

The above solution set is: {2, 3}

## Solutions Everywhere!

Some equations are true for all allowed values and are then called Identities

## Example: sin(−θ) = −sin(θ) is one of the Trigonometric Identities

So it is also true for θ = 90°

Is it true for all values of θ ? Try some values for yourself!

## How to Solve an Equation

There is no "one perfect way" to solve all equations.

## A Useful Goal

But we often get success when our goal is to end up with:

## Example: Solve 3x−6 = 9

and a short calculation reveals that x = 5

## Like a Puzzle

Here are some things we can do:

- Add or Subtract the same value from both sides
- Clear out any fractions by Multiplying every term by the bottom parts
- Divide every term by the same nonzero value
- Combine Like Terms
- Expanding (the opposite of factoring) may also help
- Recognizing a pattern, such as the difference of squares
- Sometimes we can apply a function to both sides (e.g. square both sides)

## Example: Solve √(x/2) = 3

And the more "tricks" and techniques you learn the better you will get.

## Special Equations

There are special ways of solving some types of equations. Learn how to ...

## Check Your Solutions

You should always check that your "solution" really is a solution.

## How To Check

Take the solution(s) and put them in the original equation to see if they really work.

## Example: solve for x:

We have said x≠3 to avoid a division by zero.

Let's multiply through by (x − 3) :

Which can be solved by having x=3

Let us check x=3 using the original question:

Hang On: 3 − 3 = 0 That means dividing by Zero!

And anyway, we said at the top that x≠3 , so ...

x = 3 does not actually work, and so:

"Solving" only gives us possible solutions, they need to be checked!

- Note down where an expression is not defined (due to a division by zero, the square root of a negative number, or some other reason)
- Show all the steps , so it can be checked later (by you or someone else)

4x = 5 - 1 (Subtracted 1 from both sides).

4x = 4 (Solve the R.H.S using algebraic operations)

x = 1 (Divided both sides by 4)

Using the identity (a + b) 2 = a 2 + 2ab + b 2 , we get

Important Notes on Algebraic Equations:

- An algebraic equation is an equation where two algebraic expressions are joined together using an equal sign .
- Polynomial equations are algebra equations.
- Algebraic equations can be one-step, two-step , or multi-step equations .
- Algebra equations are classified as linear, quadratic, cubic, and higher-order equations based on the degree.
- Example 1: Solve the algebraic equation x + 3 = 2x Solution: Taking the variable terms on one side of the equation and keeping the constant terms on the other side we get, 3 = 2x - x 3 = x Answer: x = 3
- Example 2: A total of 15 items can fit in a box. If the box contains 2 scales, 7 pencils, and 1 eraser then how many pens can fit in the box? Solution: Converting this problem statement in the form of an algebraic equation we get, 2 scales + 7 pencils + 1 eraser + x pens = 15 2 + 7 + 1 + x = 15 Solving the L.H.S 10 + x = 15 x = 15 - 10 x = 5 Answer: 5 pens can fit in the box
- Example 3: Find the roots of the quadratic equation x 2 + x - 6 = 0 Solution: Using the quadratic formula x = [-b ± √(b² - 4ac)]/2a. a = 1, b = 1, c = - 6 x = [-1 ± √(1² - 4 · 1 · -6)] / (2 · 1) x = [-1 ± √(25)] / 2 x = [-1 + 5] / 2, [-1 - 5] / 2 x = 2, -3 Answer: The roots of the given algebraic equation are 2 and -3.

## Solving equations

Problems are often answered in mathematics by solving equations.

We are going to use the method:

Solve the equation \(x + 5 = 12\)

Solve the equation \(3x - 15 = 9\)

Subtract becomes add and multiply becomes divide.

When we have letters on both sides of the equation, we need to use the rule:

Letters to the left, numbers to the right

Solve the equation \(7x - 3 = 3x + 17\)

Solve the equation \(5p - 2 = 7p + 12\)

An equation may be used to model a situation. For example:

When they hand the van back, their bill comes to £59. How many hours did they hire the van for?

First we need to put this information into an equation.

\(x\) is the number of hours they hired the van for.This is what we have to find.

Their total bill will be 17 plus 6 times \(x\) .

We usually write this as \(6x + 17\) .

Therefore they hired the van for 7 hours.

How do you solve algebraic expressions? To solve an algebraic expression, simplify the expression by combining like terms, isolate the variable on one side of the equation by using inverse operations. Then, solve the equation by finding the value of the variable that makes the equation true.

Differential algebraic equations Differential-algebraic equations (DAE) contain a mixture of differential (f) and algebraic equations (g), the latter e.g. for maintaining mass-balance con-ditions: y0= f(t,y,p) 0 = g(t,y,p) Important for the solution of a DAE is its index. The index of a DAE is the number of differentiations The R Journal Vol. 2 ...

In algebra, a quadratic equation (from Latin quadratus 'square') is any equation that can be rearranged in standard form as where x represents an unknown value, and a, b, and c represent known numbers, where a ≠ 0. (If a = 0 and b ≠ 0 then the equation is linear, not quadratic.)
