yes sir , i understand what you mean to say , but i could think of no other way , could you suggest an alternative approachLog in to reply

E.g. I tried to combine all 4 equations. The larger equation cannot be easily solved. There seem to be a lot of solutions to this equation. – Calvin Lin Staff · 8 months, 1 week ago
