Hi Simone, If you study my post to this mailing list of yesterday, you will see that I solve a similar problem. I also don't know the concrete number of values in advance. Here is my post: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_name=a810a47b0910120652n71002f3fw3e6e4afff2b48f49%40mail.gmail.com&forum_name=eclipse-clp-users As I am also new to constraint programming I know how difficult it is to get startet. I would solve your problem as follows: -----------snip-------------- sum_up_example(Amount, Variables) :- Variables :: 0..10, sum(Variables) #= Amount, % arbitrary additional constraints for the variables % e.g. labeling(Variables). -----------snip-------------- A query like "sum_up_example(10, [X1, X2, X3])" gives you a solution. Note that in this example I am using integer values, not real.
