Exercise 7: Functions

To group sets of code you can use functions. Functions are small parts of repeatable code.
A function accepts parameters. In the example below we have parameter x and y.

Type this program and save it as summation.py

#!/usr/bin/env python3

def f(x,y):
    return x*y


Save the program below as complexfunction.py

#!/usr/bin/env python3

def sum(list):
    sum = 0
    for l in list:
        sum = sum + l
    return sum

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