Write a function sumlist that takes a list and a function as input, applies the function to each element of the list, and returns the sum. Use a for loop for traversing through the elements in the list and accumulate the sum.

[Hint: Remember how for loops worked with range.

for i in range(15,18):

First time we enter the loop i will be 15, then 16 and finally 17.

Note instead of range we can actually use the list that is being entered as an argument.

for i in ls:

If ls = [15,16,17], first time we enter the loop i will be 15, then 16 and finally 17.]

For example, assuming that square and cube have been defined already, you would observe the following:

>>>sumlist([1,2,3],square)

14

>>>sumlist([1,2,3],cube)

36

>>>sumlist([1,2,3],lambda x : x)

6

**Code:**

def sumfunc(num): return num def sumlist(mylist, sumfunc): sum = 0 for i in mylist: sum = sum + sumfunc(i) return sum
