Homework Statement



I have two lists, say {a, b, c} and {1, 2, 3}. I want to place them in a table such as this

a 1
b 2
c 3

So a will correspond to 1, b to 2, etc.

The Attempt at a Solution



I know that TableForm[{{a, 1}, {b, 2}, {c, 3}}] would give the result I need. So I need to find a way to 'connect' the elements my two lists somewhow, if that makes sense. How do I go about this?

Try this out:

Join[Transpose[{{a, b, c}}], Transpose[{{x, y, z}}], 2]

you need to write your list as {{a,b,c}} instead of {a,b,c}. the first one is a matrix and the second one is a vector; in mathematica they are not just the same; and you can't apply Transpose[] to a mathematica's vector (you can by writing Transpose[{a,b,c},{1}], but that does not give the desired result). You needed to find a way to 'join' the two :-p

(please, try to answer a question I made about making tables if you can, look at my profile, thanks)
