# Python: Insert an element in a given list after every nth position

## Python List: Exercise - 170 with Solution

Write a Python program to insert an element in a given list after every nth position.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def insert_elemnt_nth(lst, ele, n):
result = []
for st_idx in range(0, len(lst), n):
result.extend(lst[st_idx:st_idx+n])
result.append(ele)
result.pop()
return result

nums = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
i_ele = 'a'
i_ele_pos = 2
print("\nInsert",i_ele,"in the said list after",i_ele_pos,"nd element:")
print(insert_elemnt_nth(nums, i_ele, i_ele_pos))
i_ele = 'b'
i_ele_pos = 4
print("\nInsert",i_ele,"in the said list after",i_ele_pos,"th element:")
print(insert_elemnt_nth(nums, i_ele, i_ele_pos))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original list:
[1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 0]

Insert a in the said list after 2 nd element:
[1, 2, 'a', 3, 4, 'a', 5, 6, 'a', 7, 8, 'a', 9, 0]

Insert b in the said list after 4 th element:
[1, 2, 3, 4, 'b', 5, 6, 7, 8, 'b', 9, 0]
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Capitalizes the first letter of a string:

Example:

```def tips_capitalize(s, lower_rest=False):
return s[:1].upper() + (s[1:].lower() if lower_rest else s[1:])
print(tips_capitalize('pythonTips'))
print(tips_capitalize('pythonTips', True))
```

Output:

```PythonTips
Pythontips
```
