Python: Interleave two given list into another list randomly using map function

Python map: Exercise-14 with Solution

Write a Python program to interleave two given list into another list randomly using map() function.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import random
def randomly_interleave(nums1, nums2):
    result =  list(map(next, random.sample([iter(nums1)]*len(nums1) + [iter(nums2)]*len(nums2), len(nums1)+len(nums2))))
    return result
nums1 = [1,2,7,8,3,7]
nums2 = [4,3,8,9,4,3,8,9]
print("Original lists:") 
print(nums1)
print(nums2)
print("\nInterleave two given list into another list randomly:")
print(randomly_interleave(nums1, nums2))

Sample Output:

Original lists:
[1, 2, 7, 8, 3, 7]
[4, 3, 8, 9, 4, 3, 8, 9]

Interleave two given list into another list randomly:
[4, 3, 8, 9, 1, 2, 4, 3, 7, 8, 3, 7, 8, 9]

Python: Tips of the Day

Clamps num within the inclusive range specified by the boundary values x and y:

Example:

def tips_clamp_num(num,x,y):
  return max(min(num, max(x, y)), min(x, y))
print(tips_clamp_num(2, 4, 6))
print(tips_clamp_num(1, -1, -6))

Output:
