Python: Interleave two given list into another list randomly

Python List: Exercise - 147 with Solution

Write a Python program to interleave two given list into another list randomly.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import random
def randomly_interleave(nums1, nums2):
    result =  [x.pop(0) for x in random.sample([nums1]*len(nums1) + [nums2]*len(nums2), len(nums1)+len(nums2))]
    return result
nums1 = [1,2,7,8,3,7]
nums2 = [4,3,8,9,4,3,8,9]
print("Original lists:") 
print(nums1)
print(nums2)
print("\nInterleave two given list into another list randomly:")
print(randomly_interleave(nums1, nums2))

Sample Output:

Original lists:
[1, 2, 7, 8, 3, 7]
[4, 3, 8, 9, 4, 3, 8, 9]

Interleave two given list into another list randomly:
[4, 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 4, 3, 7, 8, 9, 8, 3, 7]
