dimensions = [
    (5, 5),
    (10, 10),
    (2.2, 2.3),
    (100, 100),
    (8, 70),

def area(x):
    for a in x:
    return a*a

areas = [area(x) for x in dimensions]

1 Answer

You are trying to create a function which multiplies the first item in the tuple with the second item.

There is no need for a 'for' statement or the last line of code you wrote.

Here's how I would solve the question:

 def area(x):
    return x[0]*x[1]

cool.got it.Thanks
