Hello Try this: argmin[func_,x_]:=Minimize[func, x][[2,1,2]]; Clear[x];x=argmin[x^2-3x+6,x]; x Best Regards Norbert Marxer www.mec.li erkutsonmez wrote: > Say that,I have the following minimization problem > > Minimize[x^2 - 3x + 6, x] > > which gives me the x value that minimizes the expression in the format > of > > {x -> 3\2}. > > > I want to get the result in the format of x = 3/2 before seeing the > result .
