Python: Find the maximum and minimum values in a given list of tuples using lambda function

Python Lambda: Exercise-51 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the maximum and minimum values in a given list of tuples using lambda function.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

def max_min_list_tuples(class_students):
    return_max = max(class_students,key=lambda item:item[1])[1]
    return_min = min(class_students,key=lambda item:item[1])[1]
    return return_max, return_min
    
class_students = [('V', 62), ('VI', 68), ('VII', 72), ('VIII', 70), ('IX', 74), ('X', 65)]
print("Original list with tuples:")
print(class_students)
print("\nMaximum and minimum values of the said list of tuples:")
print(max_min_list_tuples(class_students))

Sample Output:

Original list with tuples:
[('V', 62), ('VI', 68), ('VII', 72), ('VIII', 70), ('IX', 74), ('X', 65)]

Maximum and minimum values of the said list of tuples:
(74, 62)

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']]
