Dear all, the Manipulate[] below calculates x^2. one can slide x to get y=x^2. But you can not slide y to get Sqrt[y]. I understand the behaviour, the expression just assigns y with x^2 and the prior value of y is lost, that is the reason why the code doesn't work. How can this be fixed within one single Manipulate[] ? any suggestions ? thanks ! Manipulate[ y = x^2; x = Sqrt[y]; {x, y}, {x, 0, 10}, {y, 0, 100} ]
