 P: 737 1. No, the manual states the solve function only works for linear inequalities (and equalities, of course ). 2. This isn't the type of question a calculator can answer, because you aren't given enough equalities to find the answer in a straight forward way (you need 2, for 2 variables). This question relies on you being able to find the 2 integers that work. My approach: $$\left(a^{\frac{1}{2}}b^{\frac{1}{3}}\right)^6=a^3b^2=432=2*2*2*2*3*3*3= 3*3*3*4*4=3^3*4^2$$
