Hello,

I am trying to solve the following equation using Maxima:

eq:(m_plus*(S/SS)^m_plus*(SS-E))/S=1

Using the following command:

solve([eq], [SS]);

I get a solution that itself contains SS!! i.e.

SS=(m_plus*E*(S/SS)^m_plus+S)/(m_plus*(S/SS)^m_plus)

What I am getting wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Julien.
