# Python: Calculate the maximum and minimum sum of a sublist in a given list of lists

## Python List: Exercise - 182 with Solution

Write a Python program to calculate the maximum and minimum sum of a sublist in a given list of lists.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def max_min_sublist(lst):
max_result = (max(lst, key=sum))
min_result = (min(lst, key=sum))
return max_result,min_result

nums = [[1,2,3,5], [2,3,5,4], [0,5,4,1], [3,7,2,1], [1,2,1,2]]
print("Original list:")
print(nums)
result = max_min_sublist(nums)
print("\nMaximum sum of sub list of the said list of lists:")
print(result)
print("\nMinimum sum of sub list of the said list of lists:")
print(result)
```
```

Sample Output:

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

Maximum sum of sub list of the said list of lists:
[2, 3, 5, 4]

Minimum sum of sub list of the said list of lists:
[1, 2, 1, 2]
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Decapitalizes the first letter of a string:

Example:

```def tips_decapitalize(s, upper_rest=False):
return s[:1].lower() + (s[1:].upper() if upper_rest else s[1:])
print(tips_decapitalize('PythonTips'))
print(tips_decapitalize('PythonTips', True))
```

Output:

```pythonTips
pYTHONTIPS
```
