FullSimplify in Mathematica version 5.0.1 (for Windows) reduces it to 0.5056179775280899 + 3.7681353364474184/ (-7.52808988764045 - 1.*x) Steve Luttrell "Scott Guthery" <sguthery at mobile-mind.com> wrote in message news:cam6ha$qjm$1 at smc.vnet.net... > A rational polynomial result from Solve multiplies every coefficient by > a large factor of 10, e.g. 10^62.
