```Hi,

can you tell me how we shall find out what input
produce

| Out[1]:=  { {30.06, 23523}, {56. 38,00005}}

because
{56. 38,00005}

is what ??

{56.38, 5}

or
{56.39, "00005"}

??
Regards
Jens

| Hi,
|
| I have a hard time trying to understand why I
get the floating-point error
| in this
| particular case: I dont't see what's wrong with
the list I am trying to
| plot.
| Here it is:
|
|
| In[1]:=  small=Take[vec,2]
|
| Out[1]:=  { {30.06, 23523}, {56. 38,00005}}
|
| In[2]:=  ListPlot[small]
|
| Then I get the error message:
|
| Graphics::gptn : Coordinate 30.06 in {30.06,
23523} is not a floating-point
| number.
|
| Hope someone can explain this to me.
|
| Best regards,
|
| Henning Heiberg-Andersen
