Python Exercises: Two strings contain three letters at the same index

Python String: Exercise-107 with Solution

Write a Python program that takes two strings. Count the number of times each string contains the same three letters at the same index.

Sample Data:
(“Red RedGreen”) -> 1
(“Red White Red White) -> 7
(“Red White White Red”) -> 0

Sample Solution-1:

Python Code:

``````def test(text1, text2):
ctr = 0
for i in range(len(text1) - 2):
if text1[i:i+3] == text2[i:i+3]:
ctr += 1
return ctr
text1 ="Red"
text2 ="RedGreen"
print("Original strings:", text1,text2)
print("Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:")
print(test(text1, text2))
text1 ="Red White"
text2 ="Red White"
print("Original strings:", text1,text2)
print("Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:")
print(test(text1, text2))
text1 ="Red White"
text2 ="White Red"
print("Original strings:", text1,text2)
print("Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:")
print(test(text1, text2))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original strings: Red RedGreen
Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:
1
Original strings: Red White Red White
Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:
7
Original strings: Red White White Red
Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:
0
```

Sample Solution-2:

Python Code:

``````def test(text1, text2):
return sum([1 for i in range(len(text1)-2) if text1[i:i+3] == text2[i:i+3]])
text1 ="Red"
text2 ="RedGreen"
print("Original strings:", text1,text2)
print("Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:")
print(test(text1, text2))
text1 ="Red White"
text2 ="Red White"
print("Original strings:", text1,text2)
print("Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:")
print(test(text1, text2))
text1 ="Red White"
text2 ="White Red"
print("Original strings:", text1,text2)
print("Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:")
print(test(text1, text2))
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original strings: Red RedGreen
Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:
1
Original strings: Red White Red White
Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:
7
Original strings: Red White White Red
Check said two strings contain three letters at the same index:
0
