# variables vs arguments

I'm a newbie so please excuse me with this silly question. I just move from Mathematica to SAGE.

I cannot tell the difference between arguments and variables in SAGE. What're the differences?

Please help.

Thank you in advance!

The right answer to your question is probably "read a Python tutorial", but I think we want to help more than that. Can you give a specific example of where you are finding things confusing (such as a command that works differently)? That would help us a lot in tailoring the answer.
