[Tutor] calling a function with a variable number of arguments

Am I correct in assuming that a function:

def funct_1(a0, a1=1, a2=2)

can be called with either 1, 2 or 3 arguments?
And if I call it:

funct_1(4, 4)

a2 will stay 2?
And so to modify the default value for a2, three arguments are needed?

Where can I find this in the manual?
