Equations are expressions, so you need to use the "colon-equal" (:=) to define equations involving one or more variables in Maple. For example: consider the following equation in one variable: 12 To enter and store this equation for subsequent processing, use the following commands in Maple: >Eqn : = 12*x-5 To solve this equation, use the > Ans : = solve(Eqn=0,x); To learn more about solving equations, download the attached Maple file below and follow along! |
