hello guys i don't know what this question is asking for help pliz!
Challenge Task 1 of 1 Alright, here's a fun task!
Create a function named combiner that takes a single argument, which will be a list made up of strings and numbers.
Return a single string that is a combination of all of the strings in the list and then the sum of all of the numbers. For example, with the input ["apple", 5.2, "dog", 8], combiner would return "appledog13.2". Be sure to use isinstance to solve this as I might try to trick you.
Important: In each task of this code challenge, the code you write should be added to the code from the previous task.
instances.py def combiner

We would have to check whether each element in the inputted list is a string or a number(int or float).
Then if the item is a string we would append it to the string we want to return. If it is a number we would sum it to the number we would return.
Then we return both the strings and the summed numbers
def combiner(list): string = '' summ = 0 for item in list: if isinstance(item,str): string+=item elif isinstance(item,(int,float)): summ+= item return string+str(summ)

Your functions should take a single argument which is a list of strings and numbers and return all the items combined in a single string. You can us isinstance method for this and create a if else statement. Also don't forget to change num into int before adding that to your final string
