Handling conditions on subvector elements
Posted: Mar 22, 2011 5:21 AM

Dear Mathworld users,

I am struggling with a piece of code which should result in a List :

1) I have a vector with subvectors with triplets of values.
2) What I wish to achieve is a cycle that returns with a List with either
'1's or '2's in it.
3) The cycle should check whether the first and second element in
subvectors are equal and neither of them are equal with the third, if so,
return 1;
If all the elements are unequal, return 2

E.g.

V= {{1,1,2},{1,1,3},{2,3,1},{1,2,3},{3,3,1}} should return with {1, 1, 2,
2,1}

I'm assuming 'If' should be the key (as it returns 2 types of values), but
I can't seem to do it properly.
