Ok I'm really lost (I'm new to python) how to use the reverse function.
I made a little program which basically the a, b, c, d, e which I have
listed below and basically I want it th result to be printed reverse so
instead doing "print e, d, c, b, a", I'd like to use the reverse
function
Can someone give pointersguidelines / on how to do it? 
a = str(math.sqrt(math.fabs(x1)) + 5*((math.pow(x1,3))))

b = str(math.sqrt(math.fabs(x2)) + 5*((math.pow(x2,3))))

c = str(math.sqrt(math.fabs(x3)) + 5*((math.pow(x3,3))))

d = str(math.sqrt(math.fabs(x4)) + 5*((math.pow(x4,3))))

e = str(math.sqrt(math.fabs(x5)) + 5*((math.pow(x5,3))))

Thanks in advance 5 3544
Use the list's reverse() function. The only thing to keep in mind is
that it will reverse inplace.
Here is an example:

In [1]: l=[1,2,3]
In [2]: l.reverse()
In [3]: l
Out[3]: [3, 2, 1]

So you could accumulate your results in a list then apply reverse() on
it.
Hope this helps,

Something like this? 
foo = [x1,x2,x3,x4,x5]

bar = [math.sqrt(math.fabs(x))+5*math.pow(x,3) for x in foo]

bar.reverse()

print bar

As was pointed out before, your assignment requires you to use a
list. You're using completely distinct names instead of storing these
sequences in a container. Read your course notes again, paying
attention to "containers" and especially "lists".

If you wanted to keep the original list intact, you could do... 
foo = [x1,x2,x3,x4,x5]

bar = [math.sqrt(math.fabs(x))+5*math.pow(x,3) for x in foo]

bar_reversed = reversed(bar)

You can use extended slice operators http://www.python.org/doc/2.3.5/what...onslices.html [1]
This function call should do what yo expect
print [e, d, c, b, a][::1]
[1] Does anyone know where to find a comprehensible description of
enhanced slices in the Python docs besides an an aged "What's new?"
column? Or is it intended that newbies read this http://docs.python.org/ref/slicings.html ? This discussion thread is closed Replies have been disabled for this discussion. Similar topics
