I have solved similar systems of equations before using the same methods, but somehow it is not working this time around. What is causing Sage to not solve this? var('r,B,a,y,k,d,c,N,A,theta') h=solve([r==B*(a*(y/k)+1-d), y==c+k*(r-1+d), (1-a)*(y/N)==((1-theta)/theta)*(c/(1-N)), y==A*k^a*N^(1-a)],y,c,N,k) show(h)  2011-11-18 16:26:33 -0500 received badge ● Student (source) 2011-11-18 07:10:55 -0500 received badge ● Editor (source) 2011-11-18 07:10:45 -0500 answered a question Taking derivative of a solution So this is what I would have wanted to do.. prior to learning about it from here. :) var('p, alpha, beta, q, A, B, J, K') h=solve([p==alpha+2*beta*q, A-B*p==J*q, p*q-K-alpha*q-beta*q^2==0],p,q,J) show(h.simplify_full()) show(h.simplify_full()) show(h.simplify_full()) show(h.rhs().diff(A).simplify_full()) show(h.rhs().diff(A).simplify_full()) show(h.rhs().diff(A).simplify_full())  and this.. h=solve([p==alpha+2*beta*q, A-B*p==J*q, p*q-K-alpha*q-beta*q^2==0],p,q,J,solution_dict=True) show([[s.diff(A).simplify_full() for s in sol.values()] for sol in h])  2011-11-18 02:33:38 -0500 commented answer Taking derivative of a solution Thanks!!

You might try this. sage: h=solve([p==alpha+2*beta*q, A-B*p==J*q, p*q-K-alpha*q-beta*q^2==0],p,q,J,solution_dict=True) sage: [[s.diff(A) for s in sol.values()] for sol in h] [[(2*B*K*sqrt(beta) - (B*alpha - A)*sqrt(K))*sqrt(beta)/(2*B*sqrt(K)*beta - B*alpha*sqrt(beta) + A*sqrt(beta))^2 - sqrt(K)/(2*B*sqrt(K)*beta - B*alpha*sqrt(beta) + A*sqrt(beta)), -sqrt(K*beta)/K, 0], [(2*B*K*sqrt(beta) + (B*alpha - A)*sqrt(K))*sqrt(beta)/(2*B*sqrt(K)*beta + B*alpha*sqrt(beta) - A*sqrt(beta))^2 - sqrt(K)/(2*B*sqrt(K)*beta + B*alpha*sqrt(beta) - A*sqrt(beta)), sqrt(K*beta)/K, 0]]  2011-11-18 01:58:41 -0500 asked a question Taking derivative of a solution Hi, is there a way to take a derivative of a solution of equations? For example, var('p, alpha, beta, q, A, B, J, K') h=solve([p==alpha+2*beta*q, A-B*p==J*q, p*q-K-alpha*q-beta*q^2==0],p,q,J)  in the solution expressions for p,q,J, can I take a partial derivative of each with respect to A by adding some kind of an expression? Also, is there a effective way to simplify the results that I get for p,q,J? 2011-09-27 03:28:07 -0500 received badge ● Supporter (source) 2011-09-26 15:55:39 -0500 received badge ● Scholar (source) 2011-09-26 15:55:39 -0500 marked best answer basic algebra with several variables-why won't it work? You are using "implicit multiplication" which Sage does not understand by default (you can turn it on if you want). You should change 2y above to 2*y and 80(3200-x-y) to 80*(3200-x-y), etc... Here is code that works: x, y = var('x, y') solve([20*(6400-x-2*y)==0, 80*(3200-x-y)==0], x, y)  Sage's output is: [[x == 0, y == 3200]]  ps. Implicit multiplication can be turned on using: implicit_multiplication(True), see the preparser documentation. 2011-09-26 15:52:39 -0500 commented answer basic algebra with several variables-why won't it work? Thanks for clearing that up for me :) Now I won't miss it! 2011-09-26 12:12:19 -0500 asked a question basic algebra with several variables-why won't it work? Hi, I'm trying to use Sage-Notebook as a basic calculator and want to do some basic algebra for two variables. However, it keeps giving me syntax error messages when I type in the below. What am I doing wrong? x, y = var('x, y') solve([20(6400-x-2y)==0, 80(3200-x-y)==0], x, y) Traceback (click to the left of this block for traceback) ... SyntaxError: invalid syntax Thank you!
