Functions are written to perform tasks and sometimes, we may need the outcome of the tasks, this can be done via
To return something from a function we add the
return keyword followed by the value to return, like here with
def age_label(age): label = "User age: " + age return label
A function can return any type of value, like a string, integer, float, or boolean. We call this value the function's "output".
In the example below, we want the function to output the
result of the
number parameter multiplied by 10.
def times_ten(number): result = number * 10 return result
We can use the return value of a function like any value by calling the function. Here, we call
age_label("22") to use its value.
def age_label(age): label = "User age: " + age return label print(age_label("22"))
