# Hide the Output

I have just an other question.

Is it possible to hide the output from an expression especially in notebook mode? The ";" does not working, as I have seen.

Is there a way to do so?

Thanks.

This question was also asked here. The answer is to use assignment:

```
sage: 1+1
2
sage: a = 1+1
sage: _ = 1+1
```

The last example is probably the best one to use most of the time, since "`_`

" generally represents the result of the last evaluation (like the ANS button on a calculator). So if you assign to "`_`

", then you're not "wasting" a variable. You'll see this trick used a lot in Sage's documentation.

Thank you for quick response. I will use the assignment to the _ variable.
