The answer is V=[B^(1-N)+C(N-1)T]^(1/(1-N))

I don't understand how to get there.

Please help me out. Thank you

Hey thiago.omena and welcome to the forums.

Are these matrices or just plain old numbers?

In the question? They are just variables. I am trying to isolate the V.

What makes you think that's the answer? It doesn't look right to me. In fact, I do not believe there is a solution in closed form.Does anyone know how to solve V=B+CT(V^N) for V?

The answer is V=[B^(1-N)+C(N-1)T]^(1/(1-N))

I don't understand how to get there.

Btw, it's better to use the formatting this site provides. If you click Go Advanced you'll see a toolbar with e.g. X

V=B+CT(V

And it is easy to show that your [itex]V=[B^{1-N}+C(N-1)T]^(1/(1-N))[/itex] is NOT a general solution to the equation. In the case that C= T= 1, B= -2 and N= 2, the equation becomes [itex]V= -2+ V^2[/itex] which is the same as [itex]V^2- V- 2= (V- 2)(V+ 1)= 0[/itex] which has roots 2 and -1. But your formula gives [itex]V= [(-2)^{-1}+ (1)(-1)(1)]^{1/-1}= [-1/2+ -1]^{-1}= [-3/2]^{-1}= -2/3[/itex] which is NOT a solution.

Is this a thermodynamic equation? If it is, you're likely looking for an asymptotic solution for V >> 1 and N >> 1. As has been said, solving the equation exactly is not possible in general, but an approximate solution in the large V and/or N limits may be possible, and is perhaps the answer you claim to have.
