I have a fairly complicated equation that I am trying to solve in Mathematica, but have been unsuccessful so far.
Here is a simplified version of the command I'm trying to run that I think highlights the issue:
It returns the error,
This system cannot be solved with the methods available to Solve. Same problem trying to use
There seems to be a clear solution of
What am I overlooking here?
I've figured out that I can use the following code to arrive at the desired solution:
However, this seems like a wonky solution. Are there some obvious major drawbacks to applying this approach generally (keeping in mind the assumptions stated above)?
If anyone is so inclined, the actual full equation I am trying to solve is:
y==A (q (x^(1-p) ((c p x)/(r-p r))^p)^((-1+z)/z)+(1-q) (((c (-1+q) x (x^(1-p) ((c p x)/(r-p r))^p)^(-1+1/z))/(d (-1+p) q))^z)^((-1+z)/z))^(z/(-1+z))
