Could someone help me understand args and kwargs? The lesson does not help. Same with lambda functions

More detailed articles: https://realpython.com/JUMP_LINK__&&__python__&&__JUMP_LINK-kwargs-and-args/ https://realpython.com/python-lambda/ *args and **kwargs, are function arguments which are not named explicitly, but expected to be used by the function. args is represented as a tuple (a group of values) and kwargs is represented as a dictionary. A lambda is just a function that is defined "on the fly", usually in the context of a higher order function like map or filter. In effect it is the same as using def, just shorter and you don't need to name the function, just use it.
