use strings and lists in a sentence
i'm getting ('The sum of', [1, 2, 3], 'is', 6) instead of 'The sum of [1, 2, 3] is 6,'.
# add_list([1, 2, 3]) should return 6 # summarize([1, 2, 3]) should return "The sum of [1, 2, 3] is 6." # Note: both functions will only take *one* argument each. def add_list(list1): sum_of_list = 0 for number in list1: sum_of_list += number return sum_of_list def summarize(list1): summary= "The sum of ", list1, "is",add_list(list1) string_version = str(summary) return string_version

It looks like you are trying to concatenate your string together in the summary variable with commas instead of the + symbol. You have created a tuple instead of concatenating your string together.
The + symbol is used to concatenate strings in python
Hope this helps.
