# Python: Sort a given list of strings(numbers) numerically

## Python List: Exercise - 139 with Solution

Write a Python program to sort a given list of strings(numbers) numerically.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def sort_numeric_strings(nums_str):
result = [int(x) for x in nums_str]
result.sort()
return result
nums_str = ['4','12','45','7','0','100','200','-12','-500']
print("Original list:")
print(nums_str)
print("\nSort the said list of strings(numbers) numerically:")
print(sort_numeric_strings(nums_str))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original list:
['4', '12', '45', '7', '0', '100', '200', '-12', '-500']

Sort the said list of strings(numbers) numerically:
[-500, -12, 0, 4, 7, 12, 45, 100, 200]
```

## 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
```
