About Exercise 1
Use PTC Mathcad solvers and solve blocks to solve systems of equations and to find the roots of a function. Solvers are similar to PTC Mathcad built-in functions. They require a specific set of arguments, and they provide one command to solve a problem. Each solver is designed to solve a specific problem. Solve blocks, on the other hand, are special areas constructed of multiple regions. In these regions, you can define your problem in natural notation. You can solve a greater variety of problems with solve blocks than with solvers. You can parameterize your solve blocks and call them later in your worksheet. After completing this exercise, you will be able to perform the following tasks:
Solve a linear or a nonlinear system of equations
Find the roots of a function
Parameterize a solve block
