I'm no Mathematica expert but what I would automatically do in a case like this,
at the first sign of trouble, is to simplify the problem to say two Rx
variables and
two equations. If there were any trouble with that, it would be easier to
figure
out what was going on. If there were no trouble, I would proceed to 3 and 3,
etc., giving Mathematica and yourself a better chance to understand the situation.
