Hi, I am using solve in MATLAB to solve a system of equations where the code is given below and the right hand sides of each equation are actually given numerical values. I wonder why there is empty solutions in sol even there is no error occurred? Thank you for your kind help.
syms x1 x2 x3 y1 y2 y3 z1 z2 z3 u1 u2 u3 v1 v2 v3
eqns = [x1 + y1 + z1 + u1 + v1 == 5*E_e(1,1),...
x2 + y2 + z2 + u2 + v2 == 5*E_e(2,1),...
x3 + y3 + z3 + u3 + v3 == 5*E_e(3,1),...
x1*x1 + y1*y1 + z1*z1 + u1*u1 + v1*v1 == 5*E_ee(1,1),...
x1*x2 + y1*y2 + z1*z2 + u1*u2 + v1*v2 == 5*E_ee(1,2),...
x1*x3 + y1*y3 + z1*z3 + u1*u3 + v1*v3 == 5*E_ee(1,3),...
x2*x2 + y2*y2 + z2*z2 + u2*u2 + v2*v2 == 5*E_ee(2,2),...
x2*x3 + y2*y3 + z2*z3 + u2*u3 + v2*v3 == 5*E_ee(2,3),...
x3*x3 + y3*y3 + z3*z3 + u3*u3 + v3*v3 == 5*E_ee(3,3)];
vars = [x1,x2,x3,y1,y2,y3,z1,z2,z3];
sol = solve(eqns,vars);
