1 + {2, 3, 4, 45, 98} {3, 4, 5, 46, 99} This works because Plus has attribute Listable. See Sections 1.2.3 and 2.6.3 of The Mathematica Book, 5th Edition (or similar sections for earlier versions), whose electronic form is part of the Mathematica distribution. While obviously one learns through experimentation, it's certainly worth your while to read at least the beginning of the book before proceeding very far with Mathematica.
