data = Thread[Array[#, 3] & /@ {x, y}]
{{x[1], y[1]}, {x[2], y[2]},
{x[3], y[3]}}
data /. {a_, b_} -> {a, b/2}
{{x[1], y[1]/2}, {x[2], y[2]/2},

=============
I have always done very ugly code when trying to do something
seemingly simple and basic such as applying a function to subparts of a list.
Simple example, I want to divide by 2 all the second elements of a
list
{{a, 5}, {b, 6}, ...} --> {{a, 5/2}, ...}
My ideas:
Transpose -> MapAt/Map -> Transpose
Build the sublist with Part and then rebuild it
Use Map and a function like #[[All, 2]] and then rebuild it.
I don't like any solution. I wanted to know if there's anything simple
that I'm overseing
Thanks guys
