Re: how to simplify an expression with both variables and numbers

Thank you, Valery. Reminds me that I need to make expression as function of unspecified variables.

Re: how to simplify an expression with both variables and numbers

Thank you very much, Alan. It's very helpful. Learn a lot from your tips. But please allow me to ask another question.........

I runned your attached file but yours stopped at the calculation of C with no result.

This happened to my original file as well, but mine gave me something as below. It just fails to extract the imaginary part of Ztot.....It doesn't make sense to me as it's able to get the real part....

Re: how to simplify an expression with both variables and numbers

Hard to be sure without seeing the file, but if you click on Im(Ztot) you will probably see a multiplication between the Im and the parenthesis, so it sees Im as a variable, not a function name.

Re: how to simplify an expression with both variables and numbers

I don't see this problem. What version of Mathcad are you using?

It's Mathcad14. You mean it runs okay in your computer?
