If I use solve() function is sage, it returns empty list, which is odd, but I found that it could be caused by too complex expression. So I managed to use sympy.solve(), but it returns exception. Here is part of my code:  k, u, v ,w , E, B, S, J, C1, C2 = var('k', 'u', 'v', 'w', 'E', 'B', 'S', 'J', 'C1', 'C2') #assumptions assume(B > 0) assume(S > 0) assume(J > 0) assume(k > 0) assume((u*E^2 + v*E + w) > 0) f1 = (S == 1/6*(4*E^3*u + 3*E^2*v)/B + 1/6*(2*E^3*u + 3*E^2*v + 6*E*w)/B - k) f2 = (J == E/B - k/(E^2*u + E*v + w)) #solve f1 and f2 for E E_S = solve(f1, E) E_J = solve(f2, E) #under our assumptions only E_S and A_J are real #so for that solutions lets find S f_S1 = (E_S.right() == E_J.right()) #show(f_S1) solve(f_S1, S) #returns [] import sympy sympy.solve(f_S1, S) #returns exception  I tried to rewrite to sympy in spyder as well, but computations didint finish in two days so I canceled it.
