I think you should have tried your suggestion first on a machine with Mathematica. It doesn't work as it is. In[4]:= x = {a, b, c}; n = {2, 5, 4}; Flatten[MapThread[Table, {x, n}, 1]] Table::itform: Argument 2 at position 2 does not have the correct form for an \ iterator. Table::itform: Argument 5 at position 2 does not have the correct form for an \ iterator. Table::itform: Argument 4 at position 2 does not have the correct form for an \ iterator. General::stop: Further output of Table::itform will be suppressed during this \ calculation. Out[5]= {Table[a,2],Table[b,5],Table[c,4]} The idea is pretty good, however, but you should write each element of n inside curly brackets: In[11]:= x = {a, b, c}; n = {2, 5, 4}; Flatten[MapThread[Table, {x, List /@ n}, 1]] Out[12]= {a, a, b, b, b, b, b, c, c, c, c} Tomas Garza Mexico City ----- Original Message ----- From: "Juan" <erfa11 at hotmail.com> To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg32310] [mg32293] more elements in a list > Hi, Merkat > I think this is O.K (I don´t have Mathematica in this computer). > > x={a,b,c);n=(2,5,4); > MapThread[Table,{x,n},1]//Flatten > > Best regards > Juan > > _________________________________________________________________ > Hable con sus amigos en línea, pruebe MSN Messenger: http://messenger.msn.es > >
