Sorted function: Learning the Python 3 Standard Library
Sorted function: Learning the Python 3 Standard Library

Figure out how to sort your data. The sorted() function allows us to sort a given iterable, where each item should be the same datatype. When given an iterable, the sorted() function returns a list with the numbers sorted from least to greatest. When given an iterable of characters or strings, the function sorts them alphabetically. You can also use key parameters to change how the list is sorted. This can be helpful when you need to organize or sort data in your Python code.
