A system of complex equations in a ti-89?

  1. Oct 11, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    While trying to analyze a mechanism, I find I have a complex equation that boils down to a couple of simple-looking equations with two unknowns. I'm under the impression that the ti-89 will solve this sort of set, but I'm having a huge problem figuring it out. The instruction manual isn't being very helpful. Direct help would be wonderful, so would directions to anything online.

    2. Relevant equations

    7cos(x) + 9cos(y) = -.732
    7sin(x) + 9sin(y) = -1.0

    3. The attempt at a solution

    There's another method to do this, but it's rather tedious.
