Re: What is causing this error message?


By using the Set (=) sign you are trying to set the value of (x^3y + xy -
10) to zero. Mathematica sees this as an attempt to change the rules for
addition, and protests consequently. You should use the Equal sign (==) in
equations.   
Do not forget to put multiplication signs or spaces in relevant places,
where multiplication is intended!

Is this what you mean? 

NSolve[{x^3*y + x*y - 10 == 0, x*y^2 - x*y + 6 == 0}, {x, y}]

Good luck!

	NSolve[{x^3y + xy - 10 = 0, xy^2 - xy + 6 = 0}, {x, y}]

	Set::write: Tag Plus in -10 + x y + x^3  y is Protected. More.

	Please tell me how to correct this.

	Thanks.
