Hello,

I would like to solve a system of 9 nonlinear equations, with the constraints on all 9 variables to be that they are nonnegative. How can I do this?

My code is below - I am trying NLPSolve and have tried **solve**, but am getting stuck.

with(Optimization);

restart; eq1 := 531062-S/(70*365)-(.187*(1/365))*(H+C+C1+C2)*S/N = 0;eq2 := (4/365*(T+C))*S/N-(.187*(1/365))*(H+C+C1+C2)*T/N-(1/(70*365)+1/(5*365))*T = 0; eq3 := (.187*(1/365))*(H+C+C1+C2)*S/N-(4/365)(T+C)*H/N-(1/(70*365)+1/(4*365))*H = 0; eq4 := (.187*(1/365))*(H+C+C1+C2)*T/N+(4/365*(T+C))*H/N-(1/(70*365)+3/(8*365)+.2*(1/365)+.1)*C = 0; eq5 := .1*C-(1/(70*365)+1/(4*365)+1/60+.5)*C1 = 0; eq6 := (1/60)*C1-(1/(70*365)+1/(4*365)+1/210+.5)*C2 = 0; eq7 := .5*C1-(1/(70*365)+1/60+0.1e-2)*CT1 = 0; eq8 := .5*C2-(1/(70*365)+1/210+(1/9)*(0.1e-2*7))*CT2+(1/60)*CT1 = 0; eq9 := N-S-T-H-C-C1-C2-CT1-CT2 = 0; soln := NLPSolve({eq1, eq2, eq3, eq4, eq5, eq6, eq7, eq8, eq9}, {C, C1, C2, CT1, CT2, H, N, S, T}, assume = nonnegative);
