At least in this case, just use Simplify. Solve[Rr/s == Rr + x, x][[1]] // Simplify {x -> Rr*(1/s - 1)} Bob Hanlon ---- Fabian <fabian.uriarte at gmail.com> wrote: ============= Dear Group- How can one get rid of the minus sign in: In: Factor[Solve[Rr/s == Rr + x, x]] Out: {{x -> -((Rr (-1 + s))/s)}} We'd like Mathematica to provide answers with the minus sign "multiplied through" (remove Factor[] doesn't solve the problem) Thank you in advance all.
