Hi. Can someone help me with the following question: I have a table of a table of number pairs: {{{1,2),(3,-1),{2,-4)},{{1,2},{4,-5},{6,-8}},{{2,-1},{-2,-3},{-4,6}}} How may I find the minimum second element in each sub-table? For example, the first sub-table is: {{1,2},{3,-1},{2,-4}} I would like to then extract the {2,-4} element from this item. Then the {6,-8} from the second sub-table, then the {-2,-3} element from the last. Thank you, Dominic
