Hi All:

	I am using NSolve to get numerical solutions from a setof simultaneous
equations. The problem I am facing is extracting the physically
reasonable solution from the supplied list of rules. For Example,

Chop[NSolve[ Elim, {RP1,RP2}] /. P2t ->5 10^-6 ]

{{RP2 -> -7.26519017625297269`*^-7,RP1 -> 2.36086513207038839`*^-6}, 
 {RP2 -> 0.0000102421050739988284`,RP1 -> 5.26971403312072794`*^-7}, 
 {RP2 -> 3.73302832515359561`*^-7, RP1 -> 2.23274575728650503`*^-7}}

Only the third set is reasonable, given that RP1 and RP2 > 0 and RP1
+RP2 < 1 10^-6. 

I would like to use Replace with a /; condition to select a  particular
value. However, I can only use /; with delayed Rules (:> instead of
->). Any ideas how to do this? Alternatively, a different approach to
getting the pair of numbers


from the above list of rules.
