A function named ‘sum_of_cubes’ is defined that initializes a sum to 0. Every natural number is multiplied by itself thrice (cube) and added to the initial sum. The limit is the value that is passed as a parameter to the function. The limit is defined outside the function and the function is called. Relevant output is displayed on the console.
