Hello, what I am trying to do is use (math) functions within functions that are defined by ordered pairs. The code I have looks like this:

f = {-3:4, -2:2, -1:0, 0:1, 1:3, 2:4, 3:-1} g = {-3:-2, -2:0, -1:-4, 0:0, 1:-3, 2:1, 3:2}

show(g[f[g[0]]])

So, the way I intend for this to work is g[0] should return 0, which will become f[0] which returns 1, which becomes g[1] which should return -3. When I try to run this in sage 5.4, nothing appears to happen. Any help would be really great, thanks!

Hi, the code above seems fine, the output of the show function was a pdf file containing -3. Maybe just

f = {-3:4, -2:2, -1:0, 0:1, 1:3, 2:4, 3:-1}
g = {-3:-2, -2:0, -1:-4, 0:0, 1:-3, 2:1, 3:2}
g[f[g[0]]]

If you want the result printed then

f = {-3:4, -2:2, -1:0, 0:1, 1:3, 2:4, 3:-1}
g = {-3:-2, -2:0, -1:-4, 0:0, 1:-3, 2:1, 3:2}
print g[f[g[0]]]

I really appreciate you checking it, but strangely enough, now when I try evaluating the above code I get an error: Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "_sage_input_3.py", line 8, in <module> _interact_.SAGE_CELL_ID=1 NameError: name '_interact_' is not defined

The code in your question contains a syntax error and I can't edit it. I'll update the answer above to include it.
