Correct. len and round are built-in functions.

try/except and if are called compound statements.

The Python docs are a great source of information.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

Hi Andy!

I believe Assert, Raise, Try, Except, Else, and Finally all just fall under the general category of "Exceptions" (And/or "Error Handling" and/or "Exception Control Flow").

The whole idea is that it is conditional code you can put in your program that if something goes "off-the-rails" (fails/errors), your program (execution) won't grind to an abrupt halt.

I hope that/these help(s).

Stay safe and happy coding!
