# Solve with units - Ver. 13

## Solve with units - Ver. 13

(OP)
In version 11 of Mathcad you could have a solve block for a system of equations with result values having different units (for example, length and force). Mathcad 11 would give correct units. Mathcad 13 complains that 'forms of the values' do not match.  This is definetely not an improvement, so there might be a switch to overcome this, but I cannot find it. Can anybody help please.

### RE: Solve with units - Ver. 13

There isn't.  The result is a fundamental change in Mathcad

TTFN

I did manage to find a solution.

I was looking for two values (force and distance) from the solve block. To get the result, after usual Given, you need to type :

(force distance) := Find(f,d)

where (force distance) is a matrix with two rows and one column.
