Thanks again,

Kevin

## I just tried your latest code snippet, a...

I just tried your latest code snippet, and it still gives me a "solution" that doesn't satisfy the original equation.  What version of Maple are you using?  I'm on Maple 13.  Could be there's a bug that's been fixed.

Thanks for your help,

Kevin

## Not a float issue...

Thanks for the expand/simplify trick, it does help get a cleaner expression.

It still doesn't make that solution from solve work in the original equation.  The original solution was:

After substitution back into the original equation and doing the simplification you provided, it gives

for the determinant, which is obviously not zero except for special values of x2, l1 and/or l4 not provided in the solution from solve.

## Thanks for the help!...

I do have a chunk of processing that goes into forming the model, so I went the savelib/libname route.  This really helps streamline my work for me.

Thanks for all the help!  I really appreciate getting so many responses so quickly.
