I have been struggling to solve the following for over a month now. If you have any ideas, feel free to advise.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am using Mathematica (I am about to try this in MATLAB).

I have an equation that is literally a page long. I use MATHEMATICA to solve the equation for a particular variable of interest.

I now have an expression for that variable. I need to plug that expression into Excel, but as you know, if you Copy/Paste from Mathematica to a txt file, you get either MarkUp Language or some other Gobblety-gok....

For example if I solve 2ZX=7Y for Y in Mathematica, it will make the answer 'pretty' like this:

[itex]Y=\frac{2}{7}ZX[/itex] when i need it to come out like this: Y=(1/2)*Z*X

Similarly, exponents should be outputted like this X^7 instead of X^{7}.

Any ideas?

I was thinking of using MATLAB instead. Won't the output come out as desired if I use it instead?
