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],lambda x : x)
def sumlist(mylist, sumfunc):
sum = 0
for i in mylist:
sum = sum + sumfunc(i)
