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,

Rob, Thanks for clarifying. v/r,

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" ? respectfully,

Jacques, Thanks.
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. v/r,

Jacques, 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 ? :-))
