List basics
10. Deleting elements by value
Lists with if statements and loops
Lists in functions
Summary

## Instruction

Excellent. Another way to delete an item from a list is when you know the value but not the index. In that case use list_name.remove(element):

# define a list
companies = ['Royal Dutch Shell', 'BP', 'Total', 'Volkswagen', 'Glencore Xstrata', 'Gazprom']

# delete Total
companies.remove('Total')


Behind the curtains, remove(...) also shifts all elements with higher indices to avoid empty spaces.

## Exercise

Again, get rid of the first element in the list. This time, delete by value (730). Print the list afterwards.

### Stuck? Here's a hint!

Use water_level.remove(...). Inside the brackets, put the value you want to get rid of.
