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
