Python: Return the symmetric difference between two iterables, without filtering out duplicate values
Python List: Exercise - 242 with Solution
Write a Python program to get the symmetric difference between two iterables, without filtering out duplicate values.
- Create a set from each list.
- Use a list comprehension on each of them to only keep values not contained in the previously created set of the other.
def symmetric_difference(x, y): (_x, _y) = (set(x), set(y)) return [item for item in x if item not in _y] + [item for item in y if item not in _x] print(symmetric_difference([10, 20, 30], [10, 20, 40]))

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)
