Hi! Takata, The way to do it is store the solution in a variable and evaluate the variable x using the solution variable For example: soln = Solve[(x - 0.1) (x - 0.5) == 0, x] {{x -> 0.1}, {x -> 0.5}} then doing this x /. soln gives {0.1, 0.5} Cheers, Raj On Apr 15, 2:25 am, Jika... at aol.com wrote: > Dear Members: > When I use "Solve" in order to solve polynomials with high orders, its > solutions are usually reterned in terms of a pair of nested braces, > like {{x -> 0.1}, {x -> 0.5}}.
