is it possible to create a function that takes in as many parameters as the user wants without limiting the number of variables while defining them?

We should first clarify that the user does not dictate over how many parameters a function has… The programmer dictates that. In the context of users, I see them as the ones using the program, not writing it.

Python has a special operator, * called splat (spread operator/unpacking operator) which is used for unpacking a sequence.
