Hello everyone, How can I map a functions onto sub-lists when the function takes more than one argument. I can't seem to stumble upon the right syntax. Here's a list of three sub-lists. {{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}} I want to drop the first element of each sub-list, that is, 1 from the first, 4 from the second, and 7 from the third. Drop[{{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}}, 1] gives me {{4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}}, which is what I expected (I'm learning) but not what I want. So, how do I apply Drop to each sub-list? Regards, Gregory
