FoldList[Times,50,{1.1,1.15,1.2,1.35}] Best, Harvey -----Original Message----- From: Clutch [mailto:clutchderivative at gmail.com] Sent: Monday, February 20, 2012 2:46 AM To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net Subject: [mg125086] How to Multiply a Sequence of #s that depends on the previous # I have a list of #s : 1.10, 1.15, 1.20, 1.35. I start off with 50 and the first # is 50 * 1.10. The second # is the first # * 1.15. The third # is the second # * 1.20. The fourth # is the third # * 1.35. I want to maintain a list of these #s. How can this be done efficiently in Mathematica without running for loops?
