```Hi Manfred.
You should have posted also your system of equations.
In this way we would have helped us very much!

Ayway...

Copy/Paste the following in a notebook, select the cell and press Shift
+Enter

Print[StyleForm["a system of three equations in three unknowns",
FontColor -> Blue]]
eq1 = x + y + 10*z^7 == 5
eq2 = -4*x^2 - y + 2*z^3 == 0
eq3 = 6*x^2 + 5*y^7 + 4*z == 11
roots = NSolve[{eq1, eq2, eq3}, {x, y, z}];
Print[StyleForm["the number of solutions", FontColor -> Blue]]
Length[roots]
Print[StyleForm["a shorted form of", FontColor -> Blue, FontSlant ->
Italic], StyleForm[" solutions", FontColor -> Blue]]
Short[roots, 10]
Print[StyleForm["only positive solutions", FontColor -> Blue]]
Cases[{x, y, z} /. roots, {(a_Real)?Positive, (b_Real)?Positive,
(c_Real)?Positive} :> {x -> a, y -> b, z -> c}]
