I have a system of equations that can't be solved analytically, but can be solved using fsolve. I would like to plot the solution for one of the unknowns as a function of a parameter "DV" that is in a few of the equations. There are two issues at hand. First, even if I give DV a numerical value, the solutions are of the form { x = 0.23, y = 4.56 }, a form that plot( ) obviously can't handle directly. Generally I have dealt with this by using the op( ) command to pick out the solution I want; is there a better way?

But even after I have the solution I want, fsolve( ) won't work until I give it a value for DV. Thus a plot( ) command like

   plot(op(2, op(2, fsolve({e1, e2}, {x, y})), DV = -1 .. 1)

fails with an "Error, (in fsolve) DV is in the equation, and is not solved for" error.

There's got to be an esy way to do this!
