RE: Variable Assignment


The result is a replacement rule for the variable x. If you want to use
it, you need the ReplaceAll instruction or its abridged form '/.'
(note the dot):

In[1]:= FindRoot[Exp[x] == x^2, {x, -0.5}] 
Out[1]= {x --> -0.703467}
In[2]:= a=x /. %
Out[2]= -0.703467
In[3]:= a 
Out[3]= -0.703467
