mathgroup, I need your help on the following problem.I have 8 equations as follows: a=P*mcp*ac*tc*tf*tr b=P*mcp*(4*ac*tc*tf+ac*tc*tr+2*af*tc*tr-ac*tf*tr+ac*l*tc*tf*tr) c=P*mcp*(4*ac*tc+4*af*tc+l*4*ac*tc*tf+l*ac*tc*tr+2*l*af*tc*tr-l*ac*tf*tr) d=..... " " " h=.............. I need to solve these equations simultaneously for "ac" in terms of a,b,c,d, e,f,g & h. So, here i need to eliminate the other variables like P, mcp, tc, tf, tr, l, L, af, etc. I am using mathematica and tried the commands eliminate (but my PC ran out of memory before giving me the solution) and Solve[eq,var,elim] ( but this one did not work too). Have any of you encountered a similar problem? Is there a way to obtain "ac" in terms of just a, b, c, d, e, f, g&h eliminating the rest. I would appreciate your suggestions. Is there any other software package i could use for this problem? Here is thanking you in advance. Sincerely, Nikhil...
