I'm new to Mathematica and trying to run rebuild some programs from other systems in Mathematica. I'm operating on large data lists and receiving the unequal length error. However, if I simply paste the output without the extra curly bracket into an operation, everything works. Obviously, copying and pasting wont work for functions... How can I get around this? Below are the functions I'm using to generate two lists from a single dataset: ln[13]:= MapThread[Mean, Sequence[{{testdata}}]] Out[13]= {{15.0059, 14.9897, 15.0248,....}} ln[14]:= Last[testdata] Out[14]= {14.9602, 14.8624, 15.3364, 15.0231,....} When I run Length on each of the outputs, I receive the proper number of datapoints for the Last function but receive an output of "1" for the Mean function. If I paste the output with only 1 "{" though and run Length, I receive the proper output. I know this must be simple but I'm stuck.
