# Lists - Numbers

## Objective

After working through this lesson, you’ll be able to

• Write Python code using lists.

## Introductory Problem

Assign the variables youtube1, youtube2, youtube3, youtube4, youtube5 to the values 10, 23, 13, 15, 11 respectively. The values represent the minutes you spent watching YouTube each day of this week.

Print the value of the sum and average of these variables.

intro.py
``````done = False
while not done:
print("Menu")
print("I - Introduction")
print("Q - Quit")
choice = input("Choice: ")
if choice == "I":
print("Introductory Problem")
youtube1 = 10
youtube2 = 23
youtube3 = 13
youtube4 = 15
youtube5 = 11
sum = youtube1 + youtube2 + youtube3 + youtube4 + youtube 5
average = sum / 5
print("Sum:",sum)
print("Average:",average)
elif choice == "Q":
print("Exiting Game!")
done = True``````

## Examples

### Example 1

Rewrite your Do Now code as a list named youtube. Where in your code should you place your list? Before the while loop, inside the while loop or after the while loop? Why?

• Using a for loop, print the index and elements of youtube. Use the header:

print("Index\tElement")

• Create another for loop and just print out the elements.

``````done = False
youtube = [10,23,13,15,11]
while not done:
print("Menu")
print("E1 - Example 1")
print("Q - Quit")
choice = input("Choice: ")
if choice == "E1":
print("Index\tElement")
for i in youtube:
print(i,"\t",youtube[i])
elif choice == "Q":
print("Exiting Game!")
done = True``````

### Example 2

Print the maximum, minimum and sum of youtube.

``````done = False
youtube = [10,23,13,15,11]
while not done:
print("Menu")
print("E2 - Example 2")
print("Q - Quit")
choice = input("Choice: ")
if choice == "E2":
print("Max:",max(youtube))
print("Min:",min(youtube))
print("Sum:",sum(youtube))
elif choice == "Q":
print("Exiting Game!")
done = True``````

### Example 3

Print the first element of youtube. Print the last element of youtube.

``````done = False
youtube = [10,23,13,15,11]
while not done:
print("Menu")
print("E3 - Example 3")
print("Q - Quit")
choice = input("Choice: ")
if choice == "E3":
print("First Element:",youtube[0])
last = len(youtube) - 1
print("Last Element:",youtube[last])
elif choice == "Q":
print("Exiting Game!")
done = True``````

### Example 4

Ask the user for a number to search. If the number is in the list, print "Number is in the list". Else print "Number is not in the list".

``````done = False
youtube = [10,23,13,15,11]
while not done:
print("Menu")
print("E3 - Example 3")
print("Q - Quit")
choice = input("Choice: ")
if choice == "E4":
num = int(input("Number to search: "))
if num in youtube:
print(num,"is in the list")
else:
print(num,"is not in the list")
elif choice == "Q":
print("Exiting Game!")
done = True``````

### Example 5

Write code that performs the following tasks:

• Add the element 20 in the beginning of the list.

• Remove the last element of the list.

• Add the element 30 in the third position of the list.

• Add the element 50 to the end of the list.

• Using a for loop, print the index and elements of the list.

``````done = False
youtube = [10,23,13,15,11]
while not done:
print("Menu")
print("E5 - Example 5")
print("Q - Quit")
choice = input("Choice: ")
if choice == "E3":
youtube.insert(0,20)
youtube.pop()
youtube.insert(2,30)
youtube.append(50)
print("Index\tElement")
for i in range(len(youtube)):
print(i,"\t",youtube[i])
elif choice == "Q":
print("Exiting Game!")
done = True``````
