Well it appears one way is:



x1 = x /.Flatten[ Solve[x+1==2,x] ]

1

Subject: [mg70049] [mg70022] Defining Solve results as variable

Hi,

I am trying to write a program which defines a variable with the results
of a Solve equation.

So, if I write

Solve[x+1=2,x]

I get {{x -> 1}}

I have not been able to figure out how to define a variable to the
result, so that if I then type

x1 = %, for example, it defines x1 as 1.

I know this must be simple, but I didn't find it in the Help material.

Thanks in advance,

Diana
