The message
Set::write: Tag Real in 0.261799[1] is Protected
means you are using some symbol name both as a variable and as a function name. For example,

r = Sqrt[1.165158/17];
...
r[1] = 137;
...

The second assignment is interpreted as

0.261799[1] = 137;

which looks like you are trying to change the value of the number 0.261799.
