integral in solve - lrdheat - 04-23-2015 07:32 PM

I need a refresher for this solve question on Prime (asked in not quite HP for this problem on my WP 34S). I want to solve (integral x^2 from 0 to x)=10.

My CASIO 9860gii solve app is straight forward and quickly comes up with ~3.107.

I know that this problem is easily accomplished on the Prime, but I can't remember how.

Something like:

solve((int(x^2,x,0,x)) = 10,x); // Exact checked in CAS settings
solve((∫(x^2,x,0,x)) = 10,x);

Seems to work ok.

It does work, and is easy!

How can I do this on the solve app?

DrD...your example worked for the problem above, but doesn't work for solving (integral x^3-2*x^2+sqrt(13*x)dx from 0 to x)=10 (answer is ~2.61)

How do I do this in CAS, and are things different in home?

Perhaps you had a problem because you are using the same x for two different meanings.
