Python: Multiply all the numbers in a given list using lambda

Python Lambda: Exercise-43 with Solution

Write a Python program to multiply all the numbers in a given list using lambda.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

from functools import reduce 
def mutiple_list(nums):
    result =  reduce(lambda x, y: x*y, nums)
    return result
nums = [4, 3, 2, 2, -1, 18]
print ("Original list: ")
print(nums)
print("Mmultiply all the numbers of the said list:",mutiple_list(nums))
nums = [2, 4, 8, 8, 3, 2, 9]
print ("\nOriginal list: ")
print(nums)
print("Mmultiply all the numbers of the said list:",mutiple_list(nums))

Sample Output:

Original list: 
[4, 3, 2, 2, -1, 18]
Mmultiply all the numbers of the said list: -864

Original list: 
[2, 4, 8, 8, 3, 2, 9]
Mmultiply all the numbers of the said list: 27648

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']]
