Solve vs. Resolve
There are problems you _solve_ (like the ones you have in a classroom, or at work when you designing something) and _resolve_ (like a conflict, or a problem that holds you from successfully reaching something). Although formally “solve” is one of the meanings of “resolve”:
I resolved their conflict to mutual satisfaction.
He resolved the conflict on the bus between the two devices.
I solved that puzzle.
He solved that technical issue we spoke about.
Let’s use “solve” for problems that require analysis or calculation, and “resolve” for problems that involve personal, business, or international relationships.
I would like to talk about “SOLVE” vs “RESOLVE”
Some problems concern closed systems like mathematical formula. They can be solved. You can solve problems in the form of equations.
We talk about resolving issues.
Resolve suggests ending chaos, anger, war, dispute, argument, etc.
Please note the difference
When speaking about issues, “RESOLVE” is the better choice.
Solve carries the meaning of finding the one correct solution (the criminal, the answer to the riddle), so when it is used with words like problem, case, issue, dilemma, I am guessing it will carry over the meaning that there is one (simple?) solution.
Resolve is used for situations that are more complex and multi-dimensional — as the dictionary indicates, it means finding a satisfactory solution (but not, perhaps the only possible solution).
I hope that “resolves” any questions! 🙂
