Python: Product of a given list of numbers using lambda

Python Lambda: Exercise-42 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the product of a given list of numbers using lambda.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import functools 
def remove_duplicates(nums):
    result = functools.reduce(lambda x, y: x * y, nums, 1)
    return result
nums1 = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10]
nums2 = [2.2,4.12,6.6,8.1,8.3]
print("list1:", nums1)
print("Product of the said list numbers:")
print(remove_duplicates(nums1))
print("\nlist2:", nums2)
print("Product of the said list numbers:")
print(remove_duplicates(nums2))

Sample Output:

list1: [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10]
Product of the said list numbers:
3628800

list2: [2.2, 4.12, 6.6, 8.1, 8.3]
Product of the said list numbers:
4021.8599520000007

Python: Tips of the Day

Splits values into two groups. If an element in filter is True, the corresponding element in the collection belongs to the first group; otherwise, it belongs to the second group

Example:

def tips_bifurcate(lst, filter):
  return [
    [x for i, x in enumerate(lst) if filter[i] == True],
    [x for i, x in enumerate(lst) if filter[i] == False]
  ]

print(tips_bifurcate(['little', 'boo', 'peep', 'sat'], [True, True, False, True]))

Output:

[['little', 'boo', 'sat'], ['peep']]
