Mike, Is this a Mathematica question? In any case, if you want to solve in Mathematica, learn the syntax and then write... Solve[x^4 - 1 == 3, x] {{x -> -Sqrt[2]}, {x -> (-I)*Sqrt[2]}, {x -> I*Sqrt[2]}, {x -> Sqrt[2]}} David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: Mike [mailto:jenningsmca_REMOVETHIS at hotmail.com] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net I have tried multiple problems (simple ones albiet) to solve while in ALG mode. SOLVE(x^4 - 1 = 3, x) but this provides no result. Just returns the question with no answer. The answer should be x = -Sqrt(2) or x = sqrt(2). The example works in RPN, but I use both environments depending what I am doing. It worked before the upgrade. Am I missing something here! - Mike
