If you have a list of lists, you have several options. This
http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/lists.html#foreach-2 is probably what you
want. (BTW, *do* take some time to skim the functions available in the
lists module and their descriptions.)

You can also write functions that have the pattern

fun([]) ->
fun([H|T]) ->

to deal with lists of lists.

Wasn't this already covered in your study material? If it wasn't even
mentioned in passing, it's a little disturbing that your exercise
requires you to work with lists of lists, but didn't present the
knowledge required to handle them.

Anyway. All the best, man.
