Functional Python: Create a function named apply that should take three arguments: a function and two arguments. apply s
Create a function named apply that should take three arguments: a function and two arguments. apply should return the result of calling the function with the two arguments.
I've been working on this challenge for 30 minutes, but I can't seem to figure it out.
This is probably a really stupid over site on my behalf. I apologize in advance.
def apply(func, arg1, arg2): return apply(arg1, arg2)
I've also been trying combinations like this:
def apply(fuct, arg1, arg2): return apply (print ('arg1, arg2'))
I just don't understand the formatting. If I had a choice in the matter, I would define each incremental calculation as variables. Maybe I'll just stick to OOP.

The variable func is going to be the function to use. Calling the function through the variable is just like calling any other function, only this time you are using the variable's name, not the function's.
def apply(func, arg1, arg2): return func(arg1, arg2)
