Hi there, I am trying to solve this equation using Mathematica but I keep getting the following error "Solve::nsmet: This system cannot be solved with the methods available to Solve". Solve[(p*(1 - e^(-x*(d - p))))/((-d + p) (1 - e^(x*p))) == y, x] I have also tried *Reduce* but that does not work either. Any suggestions, how I can fix the error? I am new to Mathematica...my apologies if this is a very basic question. Thanks, Diviya
