```Hi math folks,

I have a 24 - 455 table. I have named the table SortedEdgeSet.

The first few lines look like the following:

{{1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6},
{1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6},
{1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6},
{1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6},
{1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6},
{1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6},
{1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6, 6, 6},...

The numbers 1 - 6 are listed 24 times in each of 455 sublists.

I would like to create a new table which does not contain the sublist
members which have two or fewer occurances of any of the six numbers in the
sublist. I only want sublists which have three or more of each of the
numbers.

So, for example, I would want to exclude the second sublist line:

{1, 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 5, 6, 6},
because it only has two 6's in it.

I don't know what an occurance function might be in Mathematica. Can anyone
help?

Thanks,

Diana M.
