Homework Help: Need help solving these simultaneous equations, anyone with a pen and paper?

  1. Apr 14, 2010 #1

    -r*(T^2 + T + 6) + 1 = 0

    4r*(T^2 + T) - T = 0

    For T and r

    One solution is T=0 and r=1/6

    There are 2 more.

    I have T = +- i/(2)0.5 and r = 1/[4(1+T)]

    But matlab is disagreeing with my solutions, can anyone rectify them for me please?
