Python Exercise: Remove an item from a tuple

Python tuple: Exercise-12 with Solution

Write a Python program to remove an item from a tuple.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

#create a tuple
tuplex = "w", 3, "r", "s", "o", "u", "r", "c", "e"
#tuples are immutable, so you can not remove elements
#using merge of tuples with the + operator you can remove an item and it will create a new tuple
tuplex = tuplex[:2] + tuplex[3:]
#converting the tuple to list
listx = list(tuplex) 
#use different ways to remove an item of the list
#converting the tuple to list
tuplex = tuple(listx)

Sample Output:

('w', 3, 'r', 's', 'o', 'u', 'r', 'c', 'e')                                                                   
('w', 3, 's', 'o', 'u', 'r', 'c', 'e')                                                                        
('w', 3, 's', 'o', 'u', 'r', 'e')

Python: Tips of the Day

Maps the values of a list to a dictionary using a function, where the key-value pairs consist of the original value as the key and the result of the function as the value:


def tips_map_dictionary(itr, fn):
  ret = {}
  for a in itr:
    ret[a] = fn(a)
  return ret
print(tips_map_dictionary([2,4,6], lambda a: a * a))


{2: 4, 4: 16, 6: 36}
