Subscripts are represented inside Mathematica by a "function" called
Subscript, whose arguments are the base and the subscript itself. If
one of the variables for which you are solving, eliminating, or to
which you are assigning values appears inside the Subscript function,
bad things can happen; Mathematica will treat Subscript just like any
other function. There are ways around this limitation, including use of
the Notation package. The rabbit hole goes very deep here, so I will
stop for now.
