# Skip

Skip? Yes, you can skip items in an array or list. Why would you want to do that? Well, in most cases, it's useful when implementing a paging mechanism and you need to skip the first set of results to show the next one.

# Basic example

The example below uses the Skip method and the amount to skip by is 3. So, it will skip over the first 3 in the array and return the remaining items.

Live example: https://dotnetfiddle.net/RDtU4A

var scores = new[] { 87, 56, 33, 20, 11 };

var newScores = scores.Skip(3); 

// output: 20, 11
