Python: Move all zero digits to end of a given list of numbers

Python List: Exercise - 65 with Solution

Write a Python program to move all zero digits to end of a given list of numbers.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

def test(lst):
    result = sorted(lst, key=lambda x: not x) 
    return result
nums = [3,4,0,0,0,6,2,0,6,7,6,0,0,0,9,10,7,4,4,5,3,0,0,2,9,7,1]
print("\nOriginal list:")
print(nums)
print("\nMove all zero digits to end of the said list of numbers:")
print(test(nums)) 

Sample Output:

Original list:
[3, 4, 0, 0, 0, 6, 2, 0, 6, 7, 6, 0, 0, 0, 9, 10, 7, 4, 4, 5, 3, 0, 0, 2, 9, 7, 1]

Move all zero digits to end of the said list of numbers:
[3, 4, 6, 2, 6, 7, 6, 9, 10, 7, 4, 4, 5, 3, 2, 9, 7, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0]

Python: Tips of the Day

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
