Easy. This is where Mathematica's Functional programming is great. factors = {1.10, 1.15, 1.20, 1.35}; FoldList[Times, 50, factors] {50, 55., 63.25, 75.9, 102.465} David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/index.html From: Clutch [mailto:clutchderivative at gmail.com] 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?
