Is tuple and list compatible? Normally, you can not add a tuple with a list. e.g.
>>> a = [1,2]
>>> b = (1,2)
>>> c = a + b
>>> TypeError!
But in this class, a tuple + a list = a list! ???
class inteSet:
def __init__(self, *number):
self.lst = [1]
print type(number)
self.lst += number
print type(self.lst)
def insert(self,e):
self.lst.append(e)
print self.lst
newNum = inteSet(23, 34)
newNum.insert(3)

the += operator must iterate over the (right side) expression if it is a sequence  behavior similar to extend ``` >>> a = [1] >>> b = (1,2) >>> a += b >>> a [1, 1, 2] >>> a = a + b Traceback (most recent call last): File "<pyshell#77>", line 1, in <module> a = a + b TypeError: can only concatenate list (not "tuple") to list >>> a.append(b) >>> a [1, 1, 2, (1, 2)] >>> a.extend(b) >>> a [1, 1, 2, (1, 2), 1, 2] >>> ```

You are right. Looks like 'self +=' is more than just 'self = self +' same thing with the operator .iadd  similar to a.externd(b). >>> import operator >>> z = operator.iadd(a, b)
