Python: Map dictionary

Python dictionary: Exercise-70 with Solution

Write a Python program to map the values of a given list to a dictionary using a function, where the key-value pairs consist of the original value as the key and the result of the function as the value.

  • Use map() to apply fn to each value of the list.
  • Use zip() to pair original values to the values produced by fn.
  • Use dict() to return an appropriate dictionary.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def test(itr, fn):
  return dict(zip(itr, map(fn, itr)))
print(test([1, 2, 3, 4], lambda x: x * x))

Sample Output:

{1: 1, 2: 4, 3: 9, 4: 16}
