Here's just another of many options: Solve[(x - 0.1)*(x - 0.5) == 0, x][[All,1,2]] {0.1, 0.5} As a function: ValuesOnly[v_List] := v[[All,1,2]] Solve[(x - 0.1)*(x - 0.5) == 0, x] // ValuesOnly {0.1, 0.5} -- HTH :>) Dana DeLouis Windows XP & Mathematica 5.2 <JikaiRF at aol.com> wrote in message news:evsr25$14h$1 at smc.vnet.net... > 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}}.
