What do you mean by why? I am not sure if you know this already. from itertools import accumulate, takewhile nums = list(accumulate(range(8))) print(nums) _________________ [0, 1, 3, 6, 10, 15, 21, 28] range function makes [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7] and accumulate function does [0,0+1,0+1+2,0+1+2+3,0+1+2+3+4,and so on] #it adds previous list items this equals to [0,1,3,6,10,15, etc]

The other way to do this is to use def function(i think you know this already)
