# Using the solution of equation

How can I use after solve(eq) the result? For example, the result for this simple linear system

[x + 2*y + 4*z - 1]
[      x + 4*z - 5]
[    3*x + 6*z - 6]


is

[[x == -1, y == -2, z == (3/2)]]


How can I use x,y,z in an expression, say x^2+y^2+z^2 ?

Sort by » oldest newest most voted The easiest way is to pass solution_dict=True to the solve command.

sage: var('x,y,z')
(x, y, z)
sage: eqs = [x + 2*y + 4*z - 1 == 0, x + 4*z - 5 == 0,  3*x + 6*z - 6]
sage: solve(eqs, (x,y,z))
[[x == -1, y == -2, z == (3/2)]]
sage: sols = solve(eqs, (x,y,z), solution_dict=True); sols
[{z: 3/2, y: -2, x: -1}]


Then, you can pass that dictionary into the subs method of your expression. For example,

sage: f = x^2 + y^2 + z^2
sage: [f.subs(sol) for sol in sols]
[29/4]
