# Get first number of each line

Hi!

is there a way to extract the first number of each line in this list?
the numbers represent forces in different directions and are output by karamba in this way. however, I need only the first one and cannot find a way to filter it.
I have attached the list which has 76 lines.

Use a DeconstructPoint component.

I guess I was thinking too complicated ;-). Thank you!

Or Deconstruct Vector, which is exactly the same thing.

Yep, it occurred to me that the list was actually vectors, but yes, it does the same thing.

perfect, thanks!
