Python: Extract specified number of elements from a given list, which follows each other continuously

Python List: Exercise - 103 with Solution

Write a Python program to extract specified number of elements from a given list, which follows each other continuously.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

from itertools import groupby 

def extract_elements(nums, n):
    result = [i for i, j in groupby(nums) if len(list(j)) == n] 
    return result

nums1 = [1, 1, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 7]
n = 2
print("Original list:")
print(nums1)
print("Extract 2 number of elements from the said list which follows each other continuously:") 
print(extract_elements(nums1, n))
nums2 = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 7]
n = 4
print("Original lists:")
print(nums2)
print("Extract 4 number of elements from the said list which follows each other continuously:") 
print(extract_elements(nums2, n))

Sample Output:

Original list:
[1, 1, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 7]
Extract 2 number of elements from the said list which follows each other continuously:
[1, 4]
Original lists:
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4, 5, 7]
Extract 4 number of elements from the said list which follows each other continuously:
[4]

Big Number Readability:

you can separate zeros with underscore (_)

print(2_000_000)
print(2_000_000 +1)

Output:

2000000
