# List Values¶

There are several ways to create a new list. The simplest is to enclose the elements in square brackets ( [ and ]).

[10, 20, 30, 40]
["spam", "bungee", "swallow"]


The first example is a list of four integers. The second is a list of three strings. As we said above, the elements of a list don’t have to be the same type.

As you would expect, we can also assign list values to variables and pass lists as parameters to functions.
