Write a Python program to convert a given list of strings into list of lists.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def strings_to_listOflists(colors):
    result = [list(word) for word in colors]
    return result

colors = ["Red", "Maroon", "Yellow", "Olive"]
print('Original list of strings:')

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:
