lgbasallote Group Title

how to solve for \(T_m\) using a calculator? \[\huge \frac{\ln (\frac{40 - T_m}{70-T_m})}{5} = \frac{\ln (\frac{0.5}{70-T_m})}{35}\]

    Is it a simple scientific calculator?

    u will have a equation like: Tm=f(Tm) enter an initial guess to save it in the Ans then enter f(Tm) in ur calculator with Ans instead of Tm then push the Ans Button repeatedly to converge

    you could use newton's method \[ y_{n+1}= y_n - \frac{f(y_n)}{f'(y_n)} \]

    I believe you can only find a solution using a numerical technique, an iterative search that converges on an answer. A bit painful using a calculator. If you just want the solution, use wolfram.

    you can get to a form like \[ 2(40-T_m)^7=(7-T_m)^6 \] but you can not isolate Tm...

    @phi are you familiar with the shift + solve in scientific calculators?

    No, but I assume it can solve equations numerically?

    maybe this will help for convenience, let y= 40-x, so the problem can be written as \[2y^7= (y+30)^6 \] \[ 2^{(1/6)}y^{(7/6)}-y-30 = 0 \] now you find the roots of this expression, and then find x= 40-y
