Python Question

Percent list slicing

I'm using python 3.2.3 IDLE and this is my code:

originalList = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 95, 96, 97, 98, 99, 100]

newList = orginalList[0.05:0.95] #<<<<I have no idea what I'm doing here
print (newList)


I have an original list of numbers, they are 1 - 100 and i want to make a new list from the original list however the new list must only have data that belongs to the sub-range 5%- 95% of the original list

so the new list must be like
[5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18....95]
. How do i do that? i know my newList code is wrong

Answer
originalList.sort()
newList = originalList[int(len(originalList) * .05) : int(len(originalList) * .95)]
