# Solve a system of nonlinear equations

I'm trying to solve the following system of nonlinear equation:

```
var("x,L,a")
sms = (x/(1-L))^(1-a) == .3
bb = x == .3*L
solve([sms,bb],x,L)
```

I expect that sage gives me a symbolic solution, the output is the following:

```
[x == 0.3*L, (-x/(L - 1))^(-a + 1) == 0.3]
```

As I am a newbie to sage, I wonder if there's something wrong/missing
