Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also a = [1,2,3,4,5] produces a list b = (1,2,3,4,5) produces a tuple lists can be modified after creation: a[2] = 7 is fine tuples cannot: b[2] = 7 results in an error

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What are differences between tuple and list? When should I use list over tuple or the other way around? It looks like a list is better since you can modify the assignment of the elements inside the bracket. Thank you for your help!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2You pretty much answered your own question. If you want a collection to be immutable (can't be changed), a tuple is a better choice. If you want the same type of collection to be mutable (changeable), a list is a better choice.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thank you guys for the help! I recently started to watch this course to learn some of program language. When listening to lectures, everything sounds straight forward, but when trying to solve problem sets, everything turns into a mess! haha
