Are you looking to solve for them numerically or in terms of each other? As far as I know if you only have one equation and yet two unkowns you cannot solve for them numerically. Someone could correct me though.
Hi,
I'm having trouble solving this equation.. I know it is supposed to turn out a quadratic equation, but I just can't do the math.. Would be incredibly grateful if anyone could help!!
Here it goes:
0,6 = √(Wa*0,4390)^2 + (Wb*0,8235)^2 + 2*(Wa*0,4390)*(Wb*0,8235)*0,253454
Now the squareroot is supposed to cover the entire right side of the equation. Wa and Wb are unknowns.
Thank you for answering!
Anyway, numerically.. Sorry, I forgot to replace Wb with 1-Wa.. What I'm trying to do here is find unknown weights in a portfolio of two assets. Since Wa + Wb = 1, Wb = 1-Wa.
For simplicity, I replaced Wa with X.
Here is the new equation:
0,6 = √(X*0,4390)^2+((1-X)*0,8235)^2+2*(X*0,4390)*((1-X)*0,8235)*0,253454
