Bug in solving simple equations with decimal exponents
Answered
The following equation needs a starting value for x if GeoGebra is going to solve it.
700=0.06* x^1.093
It is easy to solve the equation by hand (except for calculating the power), so it should be easy for GeoGebra...
I use GeoGebra 5.0.170.

If you look at the answer for
Solve[700=0.06* x^1.09]
then you will see why it has trouble with
Solve[700=0.06* x^1.093]
NSolve needs a starting value for nonpolynomials
Ok, but it can be a little bit confusing when NSolve does not need xvalue for some other kind of equations. For example 5^(x^22)=25 will be solved width the command
NSolve[5^(x^22)=25]
.
I wish this would work:
NSolve[700=0.06* x^1.093]
Please try 5.0.173.0 :)
