I just bought a Sharp EL-W535 scientific calculator. I'm wondering how I can calculate an equation like this:

9+x=10

any help?

you want to find x. Good. Cast the equation in the form
x = 10 - 9
and you probably will not need the calculator

@aburr If he is using calculator, he knows that x = 10 - 9, but the point he is asking how to operate with Calculator, he just gave the example of simple equation.

@XGenware I know how to make that work with T-84, but not with the sharp scientific calculator thats why I sent the link for manual, I belive you can find a way to solve such equations.

Thanks

Note that a CALCULATOR is not a SOLVER.

With a calculator, you must solve an equation symbolically and then use the
calculator to crunch the numbers.  A scientific calculator will have more advanced
functions than a simple [+ - x /] unit.  But it still only crunches

Sharp does make calculators that have SOLVER capabilities:

The EL-9900 is slightly more expensive at $70.

The question was answered by thakurdinesh ID: https:#a33654579 by a link given to the instruction manual. If the answer could not use the instruction manual there are more serious problems.
