You are missing the left hand side of the equation, aren't you? Try In[2]:= Solve[{v == (1/3)*Pi*r^2*h}, {h}] Out[2]= {{h -> (3*v)/(Pi*r^2)}} Tomas Garza Mexico City ----- Original Message ----- From: <mattisbusy at gmail.com> To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg54179] [mg54125] Algebraic Symbol Manipulation > Hello, > > I was wondering how to manipulate Mathematica into solving a problem > such as this: > > Solve for h: > > V = 1/3(pie)r^2h > > I would think you would do: > > Solve[{1/3(pie)r^2h},{h}] - although it does not compute the expected > answer.
