Hello,
I am very new to Mathimatica. I am trying to solve the equation Solve[D==(w/p*m+1)*(m(d+w)h)/((m^2(w/p)^2)*Sqrt[(m^2+1)((W/p)^2+1)],p]
I have values for w,m,d,h, and I input replaced the symbols above with those values. They are all between 0 and 2000. What I expected was a formula for p in terms of D. What I got was a formula that looked like
{{p>Root[123D^15+456D^19]},
{p>Root[789D^15+123D^19]},
{p>Root[432D^15+765D^19]}}
I don't have the exact equations with me, but it looks like it gives me several finite numbers in terms of roots of equations, not a real equation for p based off of D. I think I may just be interpreting this wrong. Can you help me? Thanks,Eric
