Hi all,

I have the following set up and I do not understand the mathematica reply.

In[3]:= $Assumptions = c > 0

Out[3]= c > 0

In[4]:= a1 = b/c - d == 0

Out[4]= b/c - d == 0

In[5]:= a2 = b - e == 0

Out[5]= b - e == 0

In[6]:= Eliminate[{a1, a2}, e]

Out[6]= b == c d && c != 0


Why do I get c not equal to 0 although I have the assumption c>0. For the further program I can not use this outcome
