Python: Find the minimum, maximum value for each tuple position in a given list of tuples

Python List: Exercise - 175 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the minimum, maximum value for each tuple position in a given list of tuples.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def max_min_list_tuples(nums):
    zip(*nums)
    result1 = map(max, zip(*nums))
    result2 = map(min, zip(*nums))
    return list(result1), list(result2)

nums = [(2,3),(2,4),(0,6),(7,1)]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)

result = max_min_list_tuples(nums)
print("\nMaximum value  for each tuple position in the said list of tuples:")
print(result[0])
print("\nMinimum value  for each tuple position in the said list of tuples:")
print(result[1])

Sample Output:

Original list:
[(2, 3), (2, 4), (0, 6), (7, 1)]

Maximum value  for each tuple position in the said list of tuples:
[7, 6]

Minimum value  for each tuple position in the said list of tuples:
[0, 1]

Flowchart:

Python: Tips of the Day

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:

3
