Find the len of the provided student_gpas list and assign it to a variable called length.

We'll use the function len() on the list - student_gpas to find the length of the list.

student_gpas = [4.0, 2.3, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 2.8, 1.5, 4.0]
length = len(student_gpas)

On a line beneath the existing code, find the max of the provided student_gpas list and assign it to a variable called 'max_gpa'.

Here we'll use another built in function - max() - to find our highest number in our list - student_gpas - and assign it to our variable max_gpa.

student_gpas = [4.0, 2.3, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 2.8, 1.5, 4.0]
length = len(student_gpas)
max_gpa = max(student_gpas)

On a line beneath the existing code, find the min of the provided student_gpas list and assign it to a variable called 'min_gpa'.

Again, we'll use another built in function - min() - to find our lowest number in our list - student_gpas - and assign it to our variable min_gpa.

student_gpas = [4.0, 2.3, 3.5, 3.7, 3.9, 2.8, 1.5, 4.0]
length = len(student_gpas)
max_gpa = max(student_gpas)
min_gpa = min(student_gpas)
