I am so, so glad you asked. Drum roll.
my_list = [10,20,30,40,50] print("Last number is:", list[-1])
And the output:
Last number is: 50
What just happened?
Basically, using a negative index will start moving backwards through the list from the end. So to get the second last item would be:
print("Second last number is:", list[-2]) # Output: # Second last number is: 40
And likewise, to get the last two items:
print("Last two numbers:", list[-2:]) # Output: # Last two numbers: [40, 50]
