Logic of syntax


#1

Just wondering why Python syntax for lowercase is say, WORD.lower yet maths functions are len(WORD) not WORD.len ?


#2

because len() is a built in function, and .lower is a method for string objects.

I can get in more detail about this, but this would require the explanation of classes and how this implanted in python, and why python actually doesn't have variable deceleration but rather variable naming.

I recommend to continue the course first, you can come back to this later
