Why is this wrong?
I turned the iterables into a list, took the first and last 4, added them together, turned the list into a string, turned the string into an int, then returned the value.
def first_4(something): idk = list(something) bang = idk[0:4] return bang def first_and_last_4(ladeedaa): items = list(ladeedaa) first_four_items = items[0:4] last_four_items = items[-1:-5:-1] new_list = first_four_items + last_four_items string_version_of_list = str(new_list) values = int(string_version_of_list) return values

You're working way to hard! You don't need to do all the conversions, just apply the slice(s) directly to the argument.
