# How to get coordinates of an element of a combinatorial free module?

This sounds ridiculously simple, but it seems that I don't know the right command. I have an element in a CombinatorialFreeModule, which has a finite basis. I want the coordinates of this vector as an array or a vector or in whatever way. Here is what I have tried:

```
MRH([1,3,2]) # this is our vector
```

B[[1, 3, 2]]

```
for i in MR.homogeneous_component(3).basis():
print(i) # this prints our basis
```

B[[1, 2, 3]]

B[[1, 3, 2]]

B[[2, 1, 3]]

B[[2, 3, 1]]

B[[3, 1, 2]]

B[[3, 2, 1]]

```
(MR.homogeneous_component(3)).coordinates(MRH([1,3,2]))
# this should print [0,1,0,0,0,0] or something like this
```

Traceback (most recent call last):

I have no idea what the error is supposed to tell us, unless the CombinatorialFreeModule type really doesn't have a coordinates function...
