Question re: A long way ----=0.0024990669i ?? | Comment 3 of 5 |
(In reply to A long way by Jer)

if I err- I apologize.

My intuition objects to existence of morev than 5 solutions:

x^2 =  -4, 0,  5.

Please check whether =0.0024990669i fits the original set of equations or only some ot the interim polynomial expressions.

Btw, one cannot "compare" two complex numbers.
