Do we need the "first" variable for this function?

Is there a reason we also need to include the "first" variable?

Eg - the following also appears to work, without adding "first" as a variable to pass to the function:

def calc_mean(*remainder):
    mean = (sum(remainder)/len(remainder))
    return mean

Hey Richard,

Thank you fo reaching out!

I don't see an immediate benefit of including the argument first. The simplification you suggest indeed works as expected. 

Kind regards,
