The key to the fill in question is to realize inside the function is a reference to args. This must be defined somewhere. Since the parameter list is the only available place, args must go there. However, it can be seen that the function is called with multiple arguments. The way to specify that a parameter can accept multiple arguments is to prefix the parameter with an asterisk (*). The asterisk will cause the multiple arguments to be packed into a tuple. Hence, the parameter list should be *args
