I'm a social scientist who's trying to teach himself sage and python (and to use it for my work). The last time I had a computer science course Pascal was the in thing ;) RAC 2011-02-16 14:24:59 +0100 received badge ● Student (source) 2011-02-16 13:35:22 +0100 asked a question Using numerical solution from system of equations I want to take the numerical solution of a variable in a system of equations and use it later in the program. But all I can get is the symbolic definition. Here's a simplified example of the problem. sage: var('x y z') sage: eq1 = x + y + z == 6 sage: eq2 = 2*x - y + 2*z == 6 sage: eq3 = 3*x + 3*y - z == 6 sage: solve([eq1, eq2, eq3], x, y, z) sage: v = x sage: print v  Output: [ [x == 1, y == 2, z == 3] ] x  I assume the syntax for solving the system is correct because I get the right answers but I want v = 1, not v = x. Thanks.
