Without the expression that gave rise to this output, it is difficult to reproduce. However, entering your output and evaluating it gives the result you want (Note: 6 I vice -2 I). ((1 + 2 I) - (43 - 4 I)) -42 + 6 \[ImaginaryI] Bob Hanlon In a message dated 7/20/99 8:41:57 AM, matt at NOSPAM.kelvin.nas.nasa.gov writes: >I am having the worst time dealing with a complex numbered expression. >The problem is this: I have a numerical expression I wish mathematica >to evaluate, the expression happens to be complex.
