Python Question

I am trying to make an insertion sorting program that sorted a list in ascending order. I'm getting the error:

`line 16, in <module> if listNums[x] < listNums[i]:`

For this program:

`listNums = [54, 21, 76, 43, 65, 98, 65, 32, 34, 38]`

x = 1

i = 0

Copy = 0

for z in range (0, len(listNums)):

if listNums[x] < listNums[i]:

Copy = listNums[i]

listNums[i] = listNums[x]

listNums[x] = Copy

i = i + 1

x = x + 1

print(listNums)

Answer Source

Chances are it's a bounds error because `x`

eventually increments up to `len(listNums)`

which is 1 beyond the bounds of the zero-indexed array.

Try only iterating through `range(0, len(listNums)-1)`

.
