Thanks Han - that works great! Don't know why it works yet, but it does...

It seems this would be useful (and quick) for say calculus problems involving area between two curves where the intersection(s) of the curves should first be determined.

cool, thanks again.

No problem. As for why it works, it just borrows from programming syntax. As you noted, the results from solve() are lists. So t is a list, and t(n) would simply return the n-th item within the list. If t were a matrix, then t(i,j) would return the entry in row i, column j.
