Ace,
I didn't mean anything by capitalizing the
words, Array and Matrix.
Are the capitalized words just the inert
versions of Maple commands with those names ?

John,
Thanks for the posts. You seem to be very knowledgeable of arrays, so I would like to ask if you can provide an answer or post on a question I've been nagging mapleprimes users on for a while.
Can you elaborate on the difference between a matrix and an array with respect to Maple ?
Guidance welcomed,
Respectfully,

Thomas,
Thanks for sharing the helpful info.
I also just learned, or read something new
about Maple.
It has to do with Maple's tests for primality
with the commands, nextprime, prevprime, and
isprime.
I just discovered that these routines are
probabilistic in nature.
I previously always assumed that their output
was determinate.
Although I assume that these commands return
output with a high probability of being
correct, should users still be concerned about
this ?
Again thanks,

Thanks for clarifying.

Thanks,
I'll look it up.
After first reading your response, I thought
you were being humorous.
I can't help but laugh at some of the names
Maplesoft uses.
"Blum" ?
"Shub" ?

You're right the procedure does answer the
question.
I was just looking for some feedback and
criticisms.
The only reason I used a vector to display
the final results was because that's what I
was able to figure out at the time.
Right now I don't have any other methods for
doing similar problems.

Thanks, but I tried your code and it didn't
exactly workout.
The exercise asked one to sum the pairs of
three specific numbers assigned to the
variables a, b, and c. (ignoring degenerate
or repeating pairs)
the numbers were 12321, 23432, and 34543
respectively.
Also, the only data type that I could have thought
of to put intermediate values, and eventually
all of the values of the final output was
a vector of arbitrary dimension.
would there be another way to create a similar
solution without vectors ?

Sometimes, I also use maple as a textbook. The help pages, and included definitions contain a lot of very useful information, not only with respect to maple, but also a lot of helpful reference information for mathematical topics in general.
This may be attractive to a lot of students and professionals who would like to refresh their knowledge on certain topics, or learn totally new material.

Acer Thanks,
The zip command helped, and I was using
matrices.
I never would have guessed that the command
to do this would have been called zip.
(I did extensively read the LinearAlgebra
and linalg help files.)
This just once again shows my confusion in
differentiating arrays and matrices.
I also know that in the past I inquired on the
difference between these two data structures,
but I feel I can never get enough clarification
on this matter, or enough different
explanations.
Again Thanks,
(I thought I was catching up to your
maple number ? :-))
