Looking to learn something new?
Could someone point me in the right direction...
I'm an task 1/2. I can make a function, but forgot how to ass lists. Could someone nudge me in the right direction.
# add_list([1, 2, 3]) should return 6 # summarize([1, 2, 3]) should return "The sum of [1, 2, 3] is 6." # Note: both functions will only take *one* argument each. def add_list():

- Add together list items using built-in function
result = sum( list )
2.Loop over items and add them to subtotal:
result = 0 for item in list: result += item
You will also need to have an argument in your function:
Combining all of this, you would have something like this:
def add_list(arg): result = sum(arg) return result
or combining the last two statements:
def add_list(arg): return sum(arg)
