Question about solve function for system of non linear equations
Hi,
Is there a better way to solve a system of equations on the Prime. When entering: solve([1=a*b 1=a*(b^2+1)^.5], [a b]) I am getting an error: "[b, SQRT(b^2+1)] is not rational w.r.t. b Error Bad Argument Value" (the SQRT was an actual square root symbol) I am able to do the example in the user manual without any issues but the above system of equations is giving me an error. Of course doing it by hand i can get {[a = 0.7071067812, b= 1.414213562]} Thanks...
