Hash Maps: Python
Defining the Getter

There is a natural expectation after placing an item into a bag that we will later be able to remove the item from that bag. Otherwise we have created a hole. Let’s implement retrieval for our hash map.



Define a .retrieve()method for HashMap. It should take two parameters: self and key.


.retrieve() should calculate the array index in the same way our .assign() does and then retrieve the value at that index.

Return that value.
