A few observations: 1. Meter=Floor[Sqrt[19]+7] is not an equation, it's an assignment. Meter==Floor[Sqrt[19]+7] is an equation, for which the solution is 11. 2. The solution to {Meter==11 && Meter < 6} is the empty set, so I think Mathematica is doing exactly what it should do. 3. I would avoid using a symbol called "Meter" because there's a good chance it'll conflict with some other use of the symbol David
