Obtaining the list length
Finding the number of the elements in a list is easy – you simple need to call the len() function and pass it the list as the argument:
last_names = ['Jones', 'Antunovich', 'Daniels', 'Thomson'] print(len(last_names)) >>> 4 >>>
You can use the result of the len() function to get the value of the last element of a list. Example:
last_element = len(last_names) - 1 print(last_names[last_element]) >>> Thomson >>>
Because list indices start from 0, we had to subtract 1 from the length of the list.
