# how to sort in greatest to least python

myList1 = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] # inplace sort() greatest to least myList1.sort(reverse=True) # deep copy sorted() greatest to least myList2 = sorted(myList1, reverse=True)

**Here is what the above code is Doing:**

1. myList1 = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

2. myList1.sort(reverse=True)

3. myList2 = sorted(myList1, reverse=True)

myList1 is now [5, 4, 3, 2, 1]

myList2 is [5, 4, 3, 2, 1]
