Hi Selina, variables like #1,#2,.. (called Slot) are usually used as arguments in pure functions. I have never seen them in an aswer to Solve. Maybe you should give an example. Or did you in some way use # as a variable in Solve? sincerely, Daniel$ Selina wrote: > Dear all, > > I have a (possibly simple) problem interpreting the output of Solve. I am solving two nonlinear equations, and I get a list of several solutions, each of which are huge equations, which should be functions of my parameters. Anyway, I am not sure how to describe the problem but the output of Solve involves the following: #1, #1^2, .....,#1^6, along with everything else, and at the end there is an & symbol--something like "&, 2]" at the end of the second solution, "&, 6]" at the end of the 6th solution etc. What might be the reason why the output looks like this, and is there a way to convert this to a "normal" equation (without the #1's etc.)? > > Any help would be appreciated, thanks a lot in advance. >
