 Author Comment/Response Peter Pein 10/21/12 5:19pm Hi, Bill's solution works of course but i guess you wanted to know why your attempt did not. In[1]:= f = 3 x Out[1]= 3 x In[2]:= Function[x, f][Pi] Out[2]= 3 x does not work because Function does not evaluate its arguments: In[3]:= Attributes[Function] Out[3]= {HoldAll, Protected} In[4]:= Function[x, Evaluate[f]][Pi] Out[4]= 3 Pi does what you expect.
