passing lists

Hi
Below is my function "retn" which works fine. However, how can I use this function to pass values from my lists and print 4 results.
eg - my lists
nav = [1,2,3,4]
qty = [5,6,7,8]
perc = [0.01,0.1,1.1,2.1]
.............................................................

def retn(nav,qty,perc):
    aum = nav * qty
    fee = aum * perc
    net = aum - fee
    return net
print(retn(4567.678,1256000000,0.01))

Regards

Should be fairly simple. Try this.
for i in xrange(0, len(nav)):
    print self.retn(nav[i], qty[i], perc[i])

Hi
I get an error - NameError: 'xrange' is not defined.
What is the (0, len(nav)) doing in your code?
Excuse my ignorance - new to this.

That is in version 2.2 of Python. Try changing it to range()

My Python version is 3.4.3 and my code that fails with the error is......

def retn(nav,qty,perc):
    aum = nav * qty
    fee = aum * perc
    net = aum - fee

Hi
I removed the self from "for i in range(self,0 ........ etc and it works.
Why would that be?

because in your code self is not defined. When writing code inside a "class" you refer to variables that you need to access in any function as self.[variable name]. If you are not writing a class then you don't need to worry about that.
