# Finding the constants in an expression

• I
I have a problem with this formula: I have two known value series: A1, B1, C1 and A2, B2, C2.
That gives me two equations with two unknowns n and k.  Mentor note:
More readable versions of the two equations:
$$A_1 = \sqrt[n]{\frac{B_1} k + C_1^n}$$
and
$$A_2 = \sqrt[n]{\frac{B_2} k + C_2^n}$$
Does anyone have a clue how to solve this?

You get a function ##k=k(n)## from the equations and then ##A_1^n-C_1^n=\gamma (A_2^n-C_2^n)## which I assume can only be solved numerically.

note: ##\gamma=\frac{B_1}{B_2}##.

Thank you for your answers.
I was hoping that there was some way of solving this equation that I didn't know of.
Probably there isn't.
