Darrell, I have an older version of the text, and I believe the question is poorly worded. When you see Mr. Wellin's expected answer you will realize what he was really asking. Here's his answer at the back of the older text. Clear[z,a]; Hold[z=11]; a=9; z+3/.z->a Don't forget Mathematica Stackexchange - there is alot of good stuff there to learn Mathematica.
