# Python: Sort a given mixed list of integers and strings

## Python List: Exercise - 138 with Solution

Write a Python program to sort a given mixed list of integers and strings. Numbers must be sorted before strings.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def sort_mixed_list(mixed_list):
int_part = sorted([i for i in mixed_list if type(i) is int])
str_part = sorted([i for i in mixed_list if type(i) is str])
return int_part + str_part
mixed_list = [19,'red',12,'green','blue', 10,'white','green',1]
print("Original list:")
print(mixed_list)
print("\nSort the said  mixed list of integers and strings:")
print(sort_mixed_list(mixed_list))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original list:
[19, 'red', 12, 'green', 'blue', 10, 'white', 'green', 1]

Sort the said  mixed list of integers and strings:
[1, 10, 12, 19, 'blue', 'green', 'green', 'red', 'white']
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Given a predicate function, fn, and a prop string, this curried function will then take an object to inspect by calling the property and passing it to the predicate:

Example:

```def tips_check_prop(fn, prop):
return lambda obj: fn(obj[prop])
check_age = tips_check_prop(lambda x: x >= 25, 'age')
user = {'name': 'Owen', 'age': 25}

print(check_age(user))
```

Output:

```True
```
