Solve[{5*a - c - d - e == 0.5, 4*b - c - e == 1, 6*c - a - b - d - e == 1, 4*d - a - c == 1, 5*e - a - b - c == 1.5}, {a, b, c, d, e}] {{a -> 0.4130434782608696, b -> 0.5217391304347826, c -> 0.5000000000000001, d -> 0.4782608695652175, e -> 0.5869565217391305}} Works fine here. But note the use of Equal, "==" rather than Set, "=" -- To reply via email subtract one hundred and four
