This code currently returns:
(3.3, 1.5, 2.3, 30)
This is same as the original list, when I was trying to remove values in the list greater than upper and less than lower. How can I go about removing values from the list
fcf_margin_list given that they meet my specified requirements?
I would probably create a new list containing just the items I want.
new_list = [item for item in original_list if item >= lower and item <= upper]
I could always replace the original list with the new list if I wished to do so,
original_list = new_list
