Re: Solve inconsistant actions?


Can someone enlighten me as to what discriminators Solve uses in 
providing some solutions while disdaining others in the attached simple 
code?
 
Is it an operator or Mathematica bug? I am running 6.0.1 under win xp.


newrent = Table[125000 \[ExponentialE]^(r 14), {r, .01, .04, .005}] // N

Table[Solve[newrent[[i]]/rate == 1894000 , rate], {i, 1, 7}]

Table[Solve[newrent[[i]]/rate == 1894000. , rate], {i, 1, 7}]

Table[Reduce[newrent[[i]]/rate == 1894000 , rate], {i, 1, 7}]

Table[Solve[newrent[[i]] == 1894000 rate, rate], {i, 1, 7}]

 
 Thanks for any help,
