Can there be a list with nothing in it? Yes. {} is a list of length 0, with no elements. It’s usually called the null list or the empty list. Tech Notes ◼ IntegerDigits [5671] gives digits in base 10. IntegerDigits [5671, 2] gives digits in base 2. You can use any base you want. FromDigits[{5, 6, 7, 1}] reconstructs a number from its list of digits. ◼ Rest[����] gives all the elements of ���� after the first one.
