This isn't an equation in Mathematica syntax. This expression assigns the results of k*y*x+k*z*x to X. If this is the actual expression you gave NSolve to work with then you will need to use Equal ("==") not Set ("="). Also, your title indicates you are trying to solve a non-linear system yet your example is linear since X is not x. Perhaps you meant an equation (using Mathematica syntax) in the form of x == k*y*x+k*z*x rather than what you posted. But since this reduces to 1 == k*y+k*z which is still linear. Clearly, there is something else missing or wrong. >I use for resolution the function Nsolve, but I do not obtain >solution, Note there is no built-in function Nsolve. The built-in function is NSolve. >What function might I use? There really is no way to answer this without more detail. But based on what you posted, my guess is you have not used syntax consistent with what you intend or want.
