def shuffle_word(text_list):
    text_list = list(text_list)
    shuffle(text_list)
    return ''.join(text_list)

text_list = ['Python', 'list', 'exercises', 'practice', 'solution'] 
print("Original list:")
print(text_list)
print("\nAfter scrambling the letters of the strings of the said list:")
result =  [shuffle_word(word) for word in text_list]
print(result)

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
