Python: Compute average of two given lists

Python List: Exercise - 105 with Solution

Write a Python program to compute average of two given lists.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def average_two_lists(nums1, nums2):
    result = sum(nums1 + nums2) / len(nums1 + nums2) 
    return result

nums1 = [1, 1, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 7]
nums2 = [0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 7, 8]
print("Original list:")
print(nums1)
print(nums2)

print("\nAverage of two lists:")
print(average_two_lists(nums1, nums2))

Sample Output:

Original list:
[1, 1, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 7]
[0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 7, 8]

Average of two lists:

Python: Tips of the Day

Floor Division:

When we speak of division we normally mean (/) float division operator, this will give a precise result in float format with decimals.

For a rounded integer result there is (//) floor division operator in Python. Floor division will only give integer results that are round numbers.

print(1000 // 300)
print(1000 / 300)

Output:

3
