 Author Comment/Response Bill Simpson 01/20/13 8:06pm If you have a list of things and you want to perform the same function on each thing in your list then the Map[] function is usually a good choice. Each of your things is a list and you want the total of that. The Total[] function looks like what you want. So the result is In[1]:= data={{1,6},{2,3},{4,5}};Map[Total,data] Out[2]= {7,5,9} Read the help pages for Map[] and Total[] and see if you can make sense of those now that you have seen an example. Substitute your own for data and see if it works URL: ,
