# Python - Range (sequence of integer)

A range represents a sequence of integer, it is not a list or a set.

To get a list of a set from a range, you have to use the constructor: list() or set().

``````>>> list(range(2))
[0, 1]```
```

## Snippet

For any integer n, range(n) represents the sequence of integers from 0 through n - 1.

``````for x in range(5):
print x```
```
``````0
1
2
3
4
```
```

## Syntax

A range can take 1, 2 or 3 arguments.

You can form a range with one, two, or three arguments.

• The expression range(a,b) represents the sequence of integers a, a + 1, a + 2, … , b - 1.
• The expression range(a,b,c) represents a, a + c, a + 2c, … (stopping just before b).

### 1 argument

Range starts the range at zero and increments by 1 until the size reaches 1 less than the range.

For instance:

````print range(1) `
```
``````[0]
```
```
````print range(2) `
```
``````[0,1]
```
```

### 2 arguments

Range starts the range at the first argument and increments by 1 until the size reaches 1 less than the second argument:

````range(1,3)`
```
``````[1,2]
```
```
````print range(2,5)`
```
``````[2, 3, 4]
```
```

### 3 arguments

````range(Start,End,Increment)`
```

where:

• Start is the number the list starts at,
• End is the number minus 1 where the list ends,
• Increment is how much you should increment by (default increment of 1)

For instance:

````print range(4,13,2)`
```
``````[4, 6, 8, 10, 12]
```
```
