Re: Weird Print Result


Hi,

the result of Print[] is Null -- this mean
that Print[] return nothing (but all functions
in Mathematica must return something) and so
it return Null, since X[[1]] is a sum, i.e. Head[X[[1]]]===Plus,
you replace every term in the sum by Null and you have

Null+Null+Null+Null

and this is 4*Null

Regards
