Mathematica seems to struggle with very simple equations: Solve[(A*n^a)^b/n == c, n] Solve::nsmet: This system cannot be solved with the methods available to Solve Reduce doesn't work either. Even if I add assumptions: Assuming[A > 0 && 1 > a > 0 && 1 > b > 0 && c > 0 && n > 0, Solve[(A n^a)^b/n == c, n]] Solve::nsmet: This system cannot be solved with the methods available to Solve. >> Is there a way for Mathematica to solve these equations? Many thanks, Mathieu
