converting a list element into a number?

Hi
I have noticed when using Position[], it returns a single element
list. So how do I convert that into a number other than using Flatten
to strip off the braces? It seems if I use Flatten within any
subroutine code, I get the error code thats its "Protected". So how do
I work around using Flatten?? Thanks
