How do I determine the number of elements in a list in Python?
You can do this using Python’s built-in
len() function. For example:
products = ["Apples", "Oranges", "Pears"] product_count = len(products) print(product_count) # will output "3"
len() function works by calling the provided object’s
__len__() method. The
len() function works with other iterable data types in Python as well, such as strings, tuples, and sets.
