Pass the root of a resolved equation to a new variable

Pass the root of a resolved equation to a new variable

(OP)
After solving an equation and I have found a root of 8.83 for unknown D. Now how can I pass the value of 8.83 to a new variable WW automatically without typing WW:=8.83. See below for part of my worksheet.

After resolving this equation, I know D=8.83, but how can I carry on using this found value D of 8.83 since if I type D:=, then I have no return, this is to say variable WW is not defined.

Please can you help?

Thank you very much in advance.

RE: Pass the root of a resolved equation to a new variable

Perhaps you should identify the application that you're using.

RE: Pass the root of a resolved equation to a new variable

Providing a Mathcad file directly would help, assuming that's what it is.

You should be able to assign your solution directly to D for use in the last equation

Student homework should be posted only in the student forum
