Read the error message; it says you didn't give Solve a well-formed equation. You didn't give an equation at all, so there's nothing to solve. Solve[V == 1/3Pi r^2h, h] {{h -> (3*V)/(Pi*r^2)}} Bobby On Fri, 11 Feb 2005 03:33:39 -0500 (EST), mattisbusy at gmail.com <mattisbusy at gmail.com> wrote: > 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.
