```Hi,

and you still don't like the Mathematica syntax ??
You mean
A*(1 + G) + a*((1 + G)^t) == T

because the "[", "]" symbols indicate a function
call and

*not* a algebraic grouping. And you can't find a
algebraic solution

to a transcendental equation. You can try to use a
Taylor series like

Solve[Normal[Series[A*(1 + G) + a*((1 + G)^t), {G,
1, 4}]] == T, G]

and look how wide is the convergence radius.

Regards

Jens

| Sorry. I just copied from Mathematica and pasted
it. I have no idea why it
|
| The function is just one:
|
| A*(1+G)+a*[(1+G)^t]=T, where A,a,t,T are all
positive real numbers, and t is
| no larger than 1.

| Thanks.
