Greetings,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a nagging issue that keeps annoying me in Mathematica.

If a Mathematica function outputs a number I want in the form "variable→number", is there a function I could use or something simple I could type to get the number itself, rather than in the Root[variable, number] form?

Here's an example. I type:

Needs["HypothesisTesting`"]

a=NormalPValue[-2]

and Mathematica outputs:

OneSidedPValue → .0227501

I'm looking for a function f where, if I type:

f[a]

Then Mathematica will output:

.0227501

Thanks for any help you can give.
