Python Introducing Lists Build an Application Add Items

I've got a little confuse

After every item it shows the number of item that I add. So, in which part of the code is this? into the print("Added! List has {} items.".format(len(shopping_list)))? I mean with the len function?

Because in this part of the code shopping_list.append(item) just append the item into the list, right?

Man I've got dizzy

SURE bro dude whacth evrt yo wunt

The "number of the item" would be the same as the total count of items. So that "print" statement does both jobs.

And yes, the "append" method adds one new item to the list.

Once again, thank you Steven!
