I'm trying to use the solver in Excel to solve a set of two equations, but I can't figure out how it works. Can someone give me a step by step description?

Admittedly, I don't use that function. I can usually do it quicker with other methods. That's not to say I won't try something though.

From the help file:
Microsoft Excel includes a workbook, Solvsamp.xls in the Office\Samples folder, that demonstrates the types of problems you can solve.
Did you take a look at that file to see if you could figure out what you need?

Or just post your actual problem you want to solve and we'll see if we can't figure it out too.
