Dear all, I want to plot the following type of logarithmic equation having dependent variable y and independent variable x. Log[y/a] + b*Log[c+y/d] = -x where a,b,c and d are some arbitrary constants. First I tried to solve the equation for y using Solve function in Mathematica 4.2, but got the following error message: Solve:: tdep : The equations appear to involve the variables to be solved for in an essentially non-algebraic way. Could someone please guide me as to how do we solve such equation with/without Mathematica. or If possible, how to obtain y vs. x plot in Mathematica without soving them exactly. Waiting for the kind resonse. Regards, Ravi
