Functions in python require arguments and you can be rather expressive with them. You can have functions that accept any number of arguments and there's many nice use-cases to be able to pass around keyword arguments. In this series of videos we'll explore how to use arguments (args) as well as keyword arguments (kwargs).


The goal will be to have a function that can handle both usecases.

def multiply(a, b):
    return a * b

def multiply(a, b, c):
    return a * b * c
