Python: Count the number of elements in a list within a specified range

Python List: Exercise - 31 with Solution

Write a Python program to count the number of elements in a list within a specified range.

Python: Count the number of elements in a list within a specified range

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

def count_range_in_list(li, min, max):
	ctr = 0
	for x in li:
		if min <= x <= max:
			ctr += 1
	return ctr

list1 = [10,20,30,40,40,40,70,80,99]
print(count_range_in_list(list1, 40, 100))

list2 = ['a','b','c','d','e','f']
print(count_range_in_list(list2, 'a', 'e'))

Sample Output:
