## Python Basic - 1: Exercise-12 with Solution

Write a Python program to create all possible permutations from a given collection of distinct numbers.

Pictorial Presentation: Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def permute(nums):
result_perms = [[]]
for n in nums:
new_perms = []
for perm in result_perms:
for i in range(len(perm)+1):
new_perms.append(perm[:i] + [n] + perm[i:])
result_perms = new_perms
return result_perms

my_nums = [1,2,3]
print("Original Cofllection: ",my_nums)
print("Collection of distinct numbers:\n",permute(my_nums))
``````

Sample Output:

```Original Cofllection:  [1, 2, 3]
Collection of distinct numbers:
[[3, 2, 1], [2, 3, 1], [2, 1, 3], [3, 1, 2], [1, 3, 2], [1, 2, 3]]
```

Python: The Zip() Function

```>>> students = ('John', 'Mary', 'Mike')
>>> ages = (15, 17, 16)
>>> scores = (90, 88, 82, 17, 14)
>>> for student, age, score in zip(students, ages, scores):
...     print(f'{student}, age: {age}, score: {score}')
...
John, age: 15, score: 90
Mary, age: 17, score: 88
Mike, age: 16, score: 82
>>> zipped = zip(students, ages, scores)
>>> a, b, c = zip(*zipped)
>>> print(b)
(15, 17, 16)
```
