Python: Common tuples between two given lists

Python List: Exercise - 207 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the common tuples between two given lists.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def test(list1, list2):
    result =  set(list1).intersection(list2)
    return list(result)
list1 =  [('red', 'green'), ('black', 'white'), ('orange', 'pink')] 
list2 =  [('red', 'green'), ('orange', 'pink')] 
print("\nOriginal lists:")
print(list1)
print(list2)
print("\nCommon tuples between two said lists")
print(test(list1,list2)) 
list1 =  [('red', 'green'), ('orange', 'pink')] 
list2 =  [('red', 'green'), ('black', 'white'), ('orange', 'pink')] 
print("\nOriginal lists:")
print(list1)
print(list2)
print("\nCommon tuples between two said lists")
print(test(list1,list2))

Sample Output:

Original lists:
[('red', 'green'), ('black', 'white'), ('orange', 'pink')]
[('red', 'green'), ('orange', 'pink')]

Common tuples between two said lists
[('orange', 'pink'), ('red', 'green')]

Original lists:
[('red', 'green'), ('orange', 'pink')]
[('red', 'green'), ('black', 'white'), ('orange', 'pink')]

Common tuples between two said lists
[('orange', 'pink'), ('red', 'green')]

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
3.3333333333333335
