Python: Calculate the maximum aggregate from the list of tuples (pairs)

Python Collections: Exercise-24 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the maximum aggregate from the list of tuples (pairs).

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

from collections import defaultdict
def max_aggregate(st_data):
    temp = defaultdict(int)
    for name, marks in st_data:
        temp[name] += marks
    return max(temp.items(), key=lambda x: x[1])


students = [('Juan Whelan',90),('Sabah Colley',88),('Peter Nichols',7),('Juan Whelan',122),('Sabah Colley',84)]
print("Original list:")
print(students)
print("\nMaximum aggregate value of the said list of tuple pair:")
print(max_aggregate(students))

Sample Output:

Original list:
[('Juan Whelan', 90), ('Sabah Colley', 88), ('Peter Nichols', 7), ('Juan Whelan', 122), ('Sabah Colley', 84)]

Maximum aggregate value of the said list of tuple pair:
('Juan Whelan', 212)

Python: Tips of the Day

Use Reversed() In for Loops:

>>> tasks = ['laundry', 'picking up kids', 'gardening', 'cooking']
>>> for task in reversed(tasks):
...     print(task)
... 
cooking
gardening
picking up kids
