# mpmath not working with sage equations

I'm trying to get a numerical solution to a problem similar to the one discussed in this old post but somewhat messier -- there are decimals and the variables to solve for are in an exponent. I ran the example given in the old post, with som syntactical updating and using `import mpmath as mp`

and everything works exactly as shown. But when I switch to my problem, I get a "TypeError: cannot evaluate symbolic expression numerically" error. What's the difference between the two cases and what should I do? I've tried changing ^ to ** and restarting the kernel.

Here's my code:

```
import mpmath as mp
var("Vmax,Km")
eq0 = 101/4563863823**(32.4*Vmax/Km) - 71.85 == 0
eq1 = 96.3/85080567**(2.4*Vmax/Km) - 74.25 == 0
f = [lambda Vmax,Km: eq0.lhs().subs(Vmax=RR(Vmax), Km=RR(Km)),
lambda Vmax,Km: eq1.lhs().subs(Vmax=RR(Vmax), b=RR(Km))]
found_root = mp.findroot(f, (2, 2))
found_root = Matrix(RR, found_root.tolist())
print(found_root)
fa,fb = found_root.list()
#Check results
print(eq0.subs(Vmax=fa,Km=fb))
print(eq1.subs(Vmax=fa,Km=fb))
```

You have a typo:

`b=RR(Km)`

should be`Km=RR(Km)`

. If you fix it, you get a different error :)At least that's a mathematical one. Can't believe I missed that typo!
