I'm not certain if you have specified everything you are trying to do. But for a simple list why don't you use Part instead of Take. list = {1, 2, 3, 4, 5}; Part[list, 2] 2 Or you could always use First@{45} 45 David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: sabbri [mailto:sabrinacasagrande at hotmail.com] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Hi, I generated a list of numbers, a sequence with the function NESTLIST. Now I want to take singular value to operate with it. For example I need the first value in the list, then the second, then the third... The problem is that when I use TAKE, Mathematica gives me the value I want, but into the brackets. Let's say, {45}. I need it to do calculus and to put it in some formulas... How can I eliminate the brackets? Please, help me!!!!
