# Python: Find all anagrams of a string in a given list of strings using Lambda

## Python Lambda: Exercise-19 with Solution

Write a Python program to find all anagrams of a string in a given list of strings using lambda.

According to Wikipedia an anagram is direct word switch or word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once; for example, the word anagram can be rearranged into nag-a-ram.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

``````from collections import Counter
texts = ["bcda", "abce", "cbda", "cbea", "adcb"]
str = "abcd"
print("Orginal list of strings:")
print(texts)
result = list(filter(lambda x: (Counter(str) == Counter(x)), texts))
print("\nAnagrams of 'abcd' in the above string: ")
print(result)
``````

Sample Output:

```Orginal list of strings:
['bcda', 'abce', 'cbda', 'cbea', 'adcb']

Anagrams of 'abcd' in the above string:
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Returns every nth element in a list

Example:

```def tips_every_nth(lst, nth):
return lst[nth - 1::nth]

print(tips_every_nth([1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9], 3))]
```

Output:

```[3, 6, 9]
