# Reverse List Using Indexing in Python (Example)

In this tutorial, youâ€™ll learn how to reverse a list using indexing in Python. Reversing a list can be useful when you need to change the order of elements for processing or displaying purposes. Weâ€™ll explore different methods to achieve this.

Letâ€™s get started!

## Initializing a Sample List

Firstly, letâ€™s initialize a sample list:

```# Initializing a sample list
my_list = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]```

This creates a list, `my_list`, with some elements.

## Example: Reversing a List via Indexing

One way to reverse a list is by using indexing. We can access elements from the end of the list by using negative indices. Hereâ€™s an example:

```# Reverse the list using indexing
reversed_list = my_list[::-1]

print(reversed_list)
# [5, 4, 3, 2, 1]```

In this example, we use slicing with a step value of -1 `[::-1]` to reverse the list. The `-1` step value means that we traverse the list in reverse order.

The reversed list is assigned to the variable `reversed_list`. Finally, the output is displayed, and we see the reversed list with the elements in reverse order.

## Video, Further Resources & Summary

In this tutorial, we explored how to create the inverse of a list using indexing in Python. We learned how to reverse a list by using slicing with a step value of -1. These techniques allow us to change the order of elements in a list for various purposes.
