Lists vs Tuples

I know what both are. lists are ordered and changeable and and allow duplicates and tuples are ordered and immutable and allow duplicates. I just cant figure which one to use to do something. They both have the same definitions. LITERALLY. if you look up what lists/tuples python in google it will give you the same defintion. Im asking when to use which?

The main difference is that you cannot change the tuple once you've created it. So if you want to add, change or remove data, you better go for a list than for a tuple.

Although what Lisa said about tuples is correct, there are still ways in which you can edit tuples

Lamron You would have to create a new tuple/ overwrite the previous one. Or something more hacky. ­čśë
