Python Code Example: length of a list

  1. The first line of the code creates a list named myList and assigns it the values [1, 2, 3, 4, 5].
  2. The line print(len(myList)) calls the built-in len function, which takes a list (or any other object) as an argument and returns the number of elements in the list. In this case, myList has 5 elements, so len(myList) returns the value 5.
  3. The print function is then used to print the value returned by len(myList), which is 5 in this case.

So, the code creates a list, and then uses the len function to determine the number of elements in the list and prints the result.

myList = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
