First of all, this is not a Python class I'm taking in college, it's
an operating systems class. Second, we're learning about memory levels
and this assignment was given to us with parts written in Python but
we could have used any other language to implement the solution.
Third, I've never used Python before so I'm not familiar with all the
features available in the language. Hence, I came here to ask so I
could spend time implementing the actual assignment instead of trying
to figure out how Python works.

Thanks to everyone else who tried to point me in the right direction.
