## Instruction

All right, it's time to wrap things up! Let's have a quick summary of what we've learned before we move on:

1. Tuples are frequently used to return multiple values from a function.
2. def get_min_max(input_list):
...
return (min, max)
3. Tuples as function result types are often unpacked into multiple variables.
4. list_min, list_max = get_min_max(user_list)
5. Use underscores to ignore certain values.
6. _, list_max = get_min_max(user_list)
7. Tuples often represent real-world objects ...
8. person = ('Mark', 28, 'Spanish')
9. ... or certain states/positions.
10. x_y_coordinates = (5, -14)
11. Tuples are often used in conjunction with lists.
12. people = [
('Mark', 28, 'Spanish'),
('Miranda', 21, 'ZEA')
]
13. To compare two lists element by element, we can use the zip() function.
14. for pair in zip(list_1, list_2):
if pair[0] == pair[1]:
...

Ok! How about a short quiz now?
