It depends on what you mean by "the first one." In sequence, or in order?

In sequence, use "%" for the prior result, "%%" for the one before that, and
so forth.

If you mean in order, if the previous result is a list or matrix, using
indexing:

Table example:

In[8]:= Table[x*x, {x, 1, 7}]
Out[8]= {1, 4, 9, 16, 25, 36, 49}
In[9]:= %[[6]]
Out[9]= 36

Matrix example:

In[10]:=Table[x*y, {x, 1, 5}, {y, 1, 5}]
Out[10]={{1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, {2, 4, 6, 8, 10}, {3, 6, 9, 12, 15}, {4, 8, 12,
16, 20}, {5, 10, 15, 20, 25}}
In[11]:=%[[5, 5]]
Out[11]=25
