This is very important. 2. If you must use UpperCase letter, then add something to the UpperCase letter. I'd write D0 for example instead of D. 3. start function names with lowerCase letter. 4. Mathematica is CaseSensetive. UpperCase single letters are used by Mathematica for important names. > > I need analytical expression for the x in terms of A,B,C,D and a,b, > try this: parms = {A0 -> 1, B0 -> 2, a -> 3, C0 -> 4, D0 -> 5, b -> 6} eq = A0 + B0 + x^a (C0 - D0 x^b) == 0 sol = Solve[eq /. parms, x] N[sol] --Nasser
