You have already seen and used the functions in the previous parts of the course. It is called a function call whenever we have used the following expression:
For example, there are some features that we have already seen before
- print(“Hello World”)
The word that precedes the parentheses is the function name, while the values or variables within the brackets are called arguments.
So far you have seen and worked with already defined functions, but functions can be created using def.
You define a simple function that prints the first 5 numbers of the Fibonacci sequence
def fibonacci(): i = 1 n1 = 0 n2 = 1 print ( n1 + n2) while i < 10: n = n1 + n2 print( n ) n1 = n2 n2 = n i += 1 fibonacci()
Executing the function you will obtain the sequence of the first 10 numbers of the Fibonacci sequence:
>>> 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 21 34 55
