You'll probably get several better solutions than this one. However,. . .

In[25]:= sol={{i1->220/x},{i2->100+x}};
(* [[..]] is the Part function *)

(* If want to see what Flatten does, evaluate this line without the ";" *)
sol = Flatten@sol <mailto:Flatten@sol> ;

Out[28]= 11000/x + 2(100+x)

Dear M users,
I have solution of equations which is dependend on one parameter lets say:
sol={{i1->220/x}, {i2 -> 100+x}} and I need to define function based on this
solution with the x as argument lets say: myfun[x_]:=50*220/x + 2 (100+x);

I'm trying to do it like this:

myfun[x_]:=50 * i1 + 2 * i2 /. sol

But it prints the error message: "SetDelayed::write ... [x_] is protected".

Does anybody know what's the problem and how to define such function?

Thanks in advance
