Hi, I'm not very good at working with lists. May I ask for someone to work out an example which has several elements of what I need to do. What's the best way to write a function f[list] that goes through each element of the lest, doubles each element divisible by three and reduces each of the following elements by 1. That is f[{ 1 2 3 5 7}] is { 1 2 6 4 12 } Many thanks in advance, Sam
