# Python: Count negative numbers and sum of positive numbers of a given list

## Python Basic - 1: Exercise-84 with Solution

Write a Python program that accepts a list of numbers. Count the negative numbers and compute the sum of the positive numbers of the said list. Return these values through a list.

**Sample Solution**:

**Python Code:**

```
# Define a function to count the number of negative numbers and the sum of positive numbers
def count_sum(nums):
# Check if the list is empty, and return an empty list if true
if not nums:
return []
# Return a list containing the number of negative numbers and the sum of positive numbers
return [len([n for n in nums if n < 0]), sum(n for n in nums if n > 0)]
# Test cases
nums = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
print("Original list:", nums)
print("Number of negative numbers and sum of positive numbers:", count_sum(nums))
nums = [-1, -2, -3, -4, -5]
print("Original list:", nums)
print("Number of negative numbers and sum of positive numbers:", count_sum(nums))
nums = [1, 2, 3, -4, -5]
print("Original list:", nums)
print("Number of negative numbers and sum of positive numbers:", count_sum(nums))
nums = [1, 2, -3, -4, -5]
print("Original list:", nums)
print("Number of negative numbers and sum of positive numbers:", count_sum(nums))
```

Sample Output:

Original list: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5] Number of negative of numbers and sum of the positive numbers of the said list: [0, 15] Original list: [-1, -2, -3, -4, -5] [5, 0] Number of negative of numbers and sum of the positive numbers of the said list: [5, 0] Original list: [1, 2, 3, -4, -5] [2, 6] Number of negative of numbers and sum of the positive numbers of the said list: [2, 6] Original list: [1, 2, -3, -4, -5] [3, 3] Number of negative of numbers and sum of the positive numbers of the said list: [3, 3]

**Explanation: **

Here is a breakdown of the above Python code:

- The function "count_sum()" takes a list of numbers 'nums' as input.
- It checks if the list is empty and returns an empty list if true.
- The function returns a list containing the number of negative numbers and the sum of positive numbers.
- Test cases demonstrate the function's functionality for different input lists.
