The star(*) operator unpacks the sequence/collection into positional arguments. So if you have a list and want to pass the items of that list as arguments for each position as they are there in the list, instead of indexing each element individually, you could just use the * operator.
def multiply(a, b): return a * b values = [1, 2] print(multiply(*values))
This will unpack the list so that it actually executes as −
This will give the output −
