How to separate x or solve for x

w=a*b*c^3*x*?(pie^2 * (i-x^2)^2 + 16 *x^2)/ 4*d^2 *(1-x^2)^2


I have to find x ,i have the values of all other constants ,
I tried to separate it using partial fraction but I am stuck.

Re: How to separate x or solve for x



I added some LaTex markup.

If you would like help in solving problems, you should at least make it legible!

See the link below.

You can "Quote" this reply, then edit my math equation and use the preview button to make sure you got it right.

Yikes! Why include a lot of variables to make the thing messier?
Let u = 4wd^2, v = abc^3 and p = (pi)^2

u(1 - x^2)^2 = vxSQRT[p(1 - x^2)^2 + 16x^2] ; square both sides:

u^2(1 - x^2)^4 = v^2 x^2[p(1 - x^2)^2 + 16x^2]

u^2(1 - x^2)^4 = p v^2 x^2(1 - x^2)^2 + 16v^2 x^4

I quit!

Denis, don't make me give you a lecture about LaTex, too!

Re: How to separate x or solve for x

Very drole, Sir Chaz!

So we can get down to this (if I haven't goofed):
u^2(1 - x^2)^4 = p v^2 x^2(1 - x^2)^2 + 16v^2 x^4

If it had turned out like:
A(1 - x^2)^4 + B(1 - x^2)^2 + C = 0
then we'd have a quadratic, and solve by something like k = (1 - x^2)^2 :
Ak^2 + Bk + C = 0

....soooooo I wonder if there's a typo in the original problem.
