## Two questions: (1) Is there any

(OP)
Two questions:

(1)  Is there any other way to get Mathcad 2000 into a word doc besides converting it to a rich file

(2)  I have had MathCAD solve extensive equations for a value 'c' and it gives the answer in a huge expression rather than a simplied number eg c = 10.  The simplfy command does not work... how do i get the value?

rather than solve, c > (10243/3423 + 84434^0.5)^0.5
for example

### RE: Two questions: (1) Is there any

It sounds like you're using the Symbolic solver instead of the numeric solver.  If you use the normal "=" you should get only a numeric answer:

a:5
b:3
c:a*b
c=15

TTFN
