I've been away from Mathematica for about 7 years.
Can anyone tell me why function fx gives an error message but fy does 
not? They look functionally the same to me.
Please send me an email about this.

fx[ptl_] := Module[{x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3},
   Print[pt1];
   x1 = pt1[[1, 1]]; y1 = pt1[[1, 2]];
   x2 = pt2[[2, 1]]; y2 = pt2[[2, 2]];
   x3 = pt3[[3, 1]]; y3 = pt3[[3, 2]];
   Print[x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3];
   ]
fx[{{1, 2}, {3, 5}, {4, 7}}]

fy[pt1_] := Module[{zz, x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3},
   zz = pt1;
   Print[zz];
   x1 = zz[[1, 1]]; y1 = zz[[1, 2]];
   x2 = zz[[2, 1]]; y2 = zz[[2, 2]];
   x3 = zz[[3, 1]]; y3 = zz[[3, 2]];
   Print[x1, y1, x2, y2, x3, y3]
   ]
fy[{{1, 2}, {3, 5}, {4, 7}}]

Thank you.
