Exercise
--------
wihout using python shell, what is the results of the following statements:
.. note::
sum is a function which return the sum of each elements of a list.
``sum`` is a function which return the sum of all the elements of a list.
Wihout using the Python shell, tell what are the effects of the following statements::
::
x = [1, 2, 3, 4]
x[3] = -4 # what is the value of x now ?
y = sum(x)/len(x) #what is the value of y ? why ?
x[3] = -4 # What is the value of x now?
y = sum(x) / len(x) # What is the value of y? Why?
Solution (using the Python shell ;) )::
>>> x = [1, 2, 3, 4]
>>> x[3] = -4
>>> x
[1, 2, 3, -4]
>>> y = sum(x) / len(x)
>>> y
0.5
Here, we compute the mean of the values contained in the list ``x``, after having changed its last element to -4.
y = 0.5

all the digits after the periods are discarded.
