```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
