Hi Bruce,

consider your last line: Print /@ X[[1]]. Presumably you wanted: Print @ 

X[[1]] or Print[ X[[1]] ]. What you did, is to map Print on the first 

level of X[[1]]. As the output of Print is Null and as the Head of 

X[[1]] is Plus, you created: Plus[Null,Null,Null,Null]. This gives 4 

Null, correct?
