 Author Comment/Response Lenka 09/16/05 00:39am Hi, I am new user of Mathematica 5.2. Given a List of 50 pairs of elements { { n K / (1-x) , (n+1) (K+1) / (1-0.8 x)}, { n K / (1-x-y) , (n+1) (K+1) / (1-0.68 x)}, { n K / (1-x-x) , (n+1) (K+1) / (1-0.78 x)}, .. { n K / (1-x+y) , (n+1) (K+1) / (1-0.9 (x-y))} } I know that 1. n is a positive Integer 2. K is a positive Real. 3. x,y are positive Reals 4. All denominators are positive Then.. I want 1. To select the Maximum of each pair of expression, { n K / (1-x) , (n+1) (K+1) / (1-0.8 x)} 2. If it is not possible (because it is needed to restrict the domain)... may I use Mathematica to restrict or obtain the domain of denominator or other expression that makes that the first or the second is maximum? 3. How could I use the Min[] function in order to computer all the 50 pairs at once?. I am almost sure that is possible to Use Min[] with Apply or something like that.. but I dont know how to proceed. Thanks in advance, Lea URL: ,
