Hi,

I have an assignment in which I have to write a function that takes a list, separates it in two other lists and return them into a tuple. One list has to consist of 80% of the original one, and the other 20%. My function should be able to take a list of any length, not just one that can be divided by 10, and separate in a similar ratio. So far, my code looks like this:

def sections(liste): test = [] for i in range(int((len(liste) / 100) * 80) , len(liste)): test.append(liste[i]) train = [x for x in liste if x not in test] return train, testWhich for this list:

sections([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10])Returns this, which is okay:

`Output:([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8], [9, 10])`

But for this list:sections([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12])Returns this:

`Output:([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9], [10, 11, 12])`

But I want this result:`Output:([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10], [11, 12])`

I don't really know what to add to my code to make it work like it should, maybe an if statement regarding the length of the list?Thanks!
