Using the Symbolic Math Toolbox
Solving algebraic problems
Solving statistical problems
MATLAB is amazing when it comes to helping you solve equations and find roots. Of course, getting the right answer happens only when you know how to ask the right question. Communicating with MATLAB in a manner it understands is an important part of solving the questions you have. This chapter demonstrates how to solve specific kinds of equations and how to find roots. The important thing to consider as you read is how the information creates patterns that you can use to solve your specific algebraic or statistical problem.
