Expanding equations in Solve block turns values to 0

Expanding equations in Solve block turns values to 0

I have (6) equations with (6) unknowns that I have in a solve block. In addition to showing the equations I am using, I have to show the equation with the known values shown

For example, the fourth equation is:

(V.S2) = (I.2) * (Z.L2)

I have put the variables in parenthesis to indicate the entire name for the purpose of the discussion.

The variables (V.S2) and (Z.L2) are already pre-defined. I would like to show the same equation next to the first euqation with the values of (V.S2) and (Z.L2) shown. When I try using the "simplify" or "expand" or "-->" next to the equation, the values in my results change to 0.

I have attached the Mathcad file. Going into the solve block and trying to expand the equation will cause the values in my results to change to zero. Can someone please provide some guidance? Thank you.

Sorry, the symbol math of Mathcad does not know units - ohm, V, deg.

Valery nothing attached.

As Valery indicated the symbolic engine doesn't deal with units, see the attached is of help.

Again Valery, nothing is being attached.

1. Now in Mathcad Prime we can have in one vector volt and ampere

2. It is a system of LINEAR Equations and we can use the lsolve function

@ Mike: If the variables did not have units, could I use the symbolic engine to expand on the equations?

@ Valery: In Mathcad Prime, would the Isolve function allow me to work with units and expand the equations?

Thanks in advance.

You can tell to symbolic Math of Mathcad that V =A*ohm

Thanks in advance.

The Isolve function of regular Mathcad allow you to work with units of one dimentions.

The Isolve function of Mathcad Prime allow you to work with units of different dimentions.

Do you mean this?

Because if this is what you mean, I don't see the 0's.

May be so:

This is one of the few tasks where Mathcad Prime has a distinct advantage over traditional Mathcad: the solving by the help of the lsolve function or by the help of the operator A^(-1)*v a system of linear equation A*x=v where arrays A, v and x have elements with different dimensions - Potential and Current!

Massive, massive improvement IMO.
