Hi,

I have a requirement to solve an equation to find its x value.
For example in an equation like this
(x+10x+1200+x-800)+5000+15000+0.18(x+10x+1200+x-800)=10000, in which I have to find the value of x. As per the requirement I will get the equation as a String, it is assumed that there will be RHS value in the equation, all that I need to do is to find the x value.
I know how to solve equation when x value is provided, infact there are many readymade programs available on net for that. However, I'm looking for a solution for the above requirement to find x value when RHS value is available.

Any pointers/information related to any open source implementation would be of great help to me.

Thanks & Regards,
Chandra.

This post has a similar discussion. The post describes a way to parse the given equation. It will give a head start i guess.
Have you tried something that did not work?
It will be nice if you can also tell us your approach so that we can help you better.
 
Yeah. What he said. Totally. Wait. What? Sorry, I was looking at this tiny ad:
