Solve App bug? - cclinus - 07-10-2016 06:05 AM


I try to solve C for below equation with Solve App.

The problem is if the initial value of C is 100 , it can not solve the equation. Instead, it will display "Constant".

If the initial value of C is 0.1. The answer is correct.

Is it a bug?

It's not a bug. If an initial guess is too far away from the solution, iterative methods may fail. It is always best to provide an initial guess as close to the solution as possible.
