# Python: Find the value of the last element in the given list that satisfies the provided testing function

## Python List: Exercise - 240 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the value of the last element in the given list that satisfies the provided testing function.

Use a list comprehension and next() to return the last element in lst for which fn returns True.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````def find_last(lst, fn):
return next(x for x in lst[::-1] if fn(x))

print(find_last([1, 2, 3, 4], lambda n: n % 2 == 1))
print(find_last([1, 2, 3, 4], lambda n: n % 2 == 0))
```
```

Sample Output:

```3
4
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Given a predicate function, fn, and a prop string, this curried function will then take an object to inspect by calling the property and passing it to the predicate:

Example:

```def tips_check_prop(fn, prop):
return lambda obj: fn(obj[prop])
check_age = tips_check_prop(lambda x: x >= 25, 'age')
user = {'name': 'Owen', 'age': 25}

print(check_age(user))
```

Output:

```True
```
