Those are probably root objects expressed as pure functions. If you want to see what they look like as numbers, put //N at the end.

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. > > -- Chris Chiasson http://chrischiasson.com/ 1 (810) 265-3161
