# MATLAB: How do i get a number using the solve function

solve

Hey, I used the solve function to find out the value of the variable LSs but I don't quite understand why i get this output:
LSs =
(10765243814088947007488*((510924334497131*exp(2413/918))/5382621907044473503744 – 510924334497131/5382621907044473503744)^(1/2))/510924334497131
how to i get it to output a number?

• Try:
LSs = vpa(LSs, 10)
To get it as a 10-digit number.
You can also use the vpasolve function.
