# List Length

When dealing with a sizable list, you might want to know the number of items it contains. You can determine this using the `len()` function, which returns the count of elements in the list. Let's dive into how it operates!

Note

A nested list is considered a single item. The `len()` function doesn't count the individual items inside a nested list as separate items of the main list.
