Re: How to solve this type of equation in Mathematica?
Hi try to suppose f(x) in the form a /(x^3) for an unknown parameter a Equal[Integrate[Times[Plus[P, x], Times[a, 1/(x x x)]], List[x, P, DirectedInfinity]], 1] Then you get a = 2 P / 3 The same game can be played with another integrable functions - I suspect you will have too much possible solutions :-) Greetings Jan Jeffrey Lyons wrote: > Hi, I would like to be able to solve the equation: > > Equal[Integrate[Times[Plus[P, x], f[x]], List[x, P, > DirectedInfinity]], 1] > > in Mathematica.
