Solving an implicit equation

  1. Mar 19, 2014 #1
    Equation is:
    k=(c^m-a^m)/(b^m-a^m)
    where a, b, c, and k are constants. How to solve it (numerical?) Detail please.

    Thanks

    Solve it with respect to what? m?
    It could help you to assume:

    x=exp(m)
    a=exp(u)
    b=exp(v)
    c=exp(w)

    you would solve for x, and with some luck it could be easy.
    It would be almost like finding (positive) roots of a polynomial.
