I can't figure out how to use the results of Solve I just created  as a new
variable.

Here's a simple example of what I am trying to do:

Solve[some equation, x]

Results in {x->12}

I then want to use the x in  y =  x * 5 for example....

Obviously when I try to use this it fails because Mathematica sees the
equation as y = {x->12} * 5  and not y = 12 *5 ...

How do I change the results from the Solve from a rule to an actual value I
can then use?

Thanks,

Tim
