# Sorting a list of coordinate pairs by y-coordinate

Hi!

I am attempting to combine two sets of results (coordinate pairs) of the everyImageLocation() function.

I get to the point where I have a single list with these contents:

((787,365),(787,463),(787,512),(787,560),(787,609),(787,658),(787,295),(787,414))

I've combed through the documentation on sorting and using "each", but I have still not been able to get the correct syntax for sorting each of the coordinate pairs, ascending, by their y-coordinate. The item (787,295) should be first in the list, etc.

Any ideas?

SenseTalk recognizes (x,y) pairs as coordinates, so you automatically have an x and y value in items of this type.
