How can I rename a function?

The function mult_two_add_three takes a number, multiplies it by two and adds three. We want to make this more flexible. First, change the name of the function to mult_x_add_y .

Sure, I’d love to. But how do I change the name of a function? Kinda confused here.

ETA: I got it now. It wanted me to literally change the name of the function in the code, which had been empty/overwritten with stuff from previous sections. Had to reset the section.

when you define a function:

def example():

you can rename the function at the definition:

def rename():

not get it yet? you mean ‘rename’ is a function? could u be more specific?

Given the def word defines a function, yes, rename is a function. The only way to rename a function is to change the code .

i mean , is ‘rename’ a syntax?
so we only rename by delete the old and write new name it? but every later called function will not be changed?

no, its just the name of the function.

most IDE’s and text-editors support renaming functions and methods, which will find the callers which then get renamed as well

I’m lost. I have no idea what they are asking to do?

if you want to change the name of the function after its definition , you can do this

def example():
print(“something”)

change the name of function

new_name = example

so, here you can call the function by using any name,for eg:-

new_name()
example()
