Python Python Collections (2016, retired 2019) Tuples Packing


Let's play with the *args pattern.

Create a function named multiply that takes any number of arguments. Return the product (multiplied value) of all of the supplied arguments. The type of argument shouldn't matter.

Slices might come in handy for this one.

def multiply(total, *args):
    product = total
    for p in args:
        prodct = p*product
        return product

You're really close, but I see two issues:

  • a spelling error wher you wrote "prodct" instead of "product"
  • the return should occur after the loop, not inside it (it's indented too far)
