# [NDSolve error]: Equation or list of equations expected instead of 0.0001 in the first argument {(s^\[Prime])[t]==-0.325 s[t]-1.5 i[t] s[t]-1.5 [closed]

I am trying to have 5 PDEs with 5 unknowns, with code below However, I always receive the error message that Equation or list of equations expected instead of 0.0001 in the first argument {(s^[Prime])[t]==-0.325 s[t]-1.5 i[t] s[t]-1.5 j[t] s[t],(i^[Prime])[t]==-(i[t]/14)+1.5 i[t] s[t],(j^[Prime])[t]==-(j[t]/14)+6 j[t] r[t]+6 j[t] s[t],(r^[Prime])[t]==i[t]/14-6 j[t] r[t]+0.25 s[t],(z^[Prime])[t]==j[t]/14+0.075 s[t],s[0]==0.9998,i[0]==0.0001,0.0001,r[0]==0.,0.}.

• Seems that I have been absent from Mathematica for a long time. The initial values should have two equal signs. Problem solved :) Aug 5 at 3:29
