Why doesn't Solve work here: Is this a solve bug?? In[4]:= \!\(eq1 = \[Sum]\+\(m = 1\)\%2 3*a\_m == \(-2\)\[IndentingNewLine] eq2 = \[Sum]\+\(m = 1\)\%2 8*a\_m == \(-5\)\[IndentingNewLine] Solve[{eq1, eq2}, {a\_1, a\_2}]\) Out[4]= \!\(3\ a\_1 + 3\ a\_2 == \(-2\)\) Out[5]= \!\(8\ a\_1 + 8\ a\_2 == \(-5\)\) Out[6]= {}
