Python: Read the mass data and find the number of islands

Python Basic - 1: Exercise-57 with Solution

There are 10 vertical and horizontal squares on a plane. Each square is painted blue and green. Blue represents the sea, and green represents the land. When two green squares are in contact with the top and bottom, or right and left, they are said to be ground. The area created by only one green square is called "island". For example, there are five islands in the figure below.
Write a Python program to read the mass data and find the number of islands.

Input:
A single data set is represented by 10 rows of 10 numbers representing green squares as 1 and blue squares as zeros.
Output:
Output AB and CD are not orthogonal! or AB and CD are orthogonal!.

Python: Find the customer number that has traded for the second consecutive for the second consecutive month from last month and the number of transactions

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

c=0
def f(x,y,z):
    if 0<=y<10 and 0<=z<10 and x[z][y]=='1':
        x[z][y]='0'
        for dy,dz in [[-1,0],[1,0],[0,-1],[0,1]]:f(x,y+dy,z+dz)
print("Input 10 rows of 10 numbers representing green squares (island) as 1 and blue squares (sea) as zeros") 
while 1:
    try:
        if c:input()
    except:break
    x = [list(input()) for _ in [0]*10]
    c=1;b=0
    for i in range(10):
        for j in range(10):
            if x[j][i]=='1':
                b+=1;f(x,i,j)
    print("Number of islands:")     
    print(b)

Sample Output:

Input 10 rows of 10 numbers representing green squares (island) as 1 and blue squares (sea) as zeros
