Python Exercise: Find the index of an item of a tuple

Python tuple: Exercise-14 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the index of an item of a tuple.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

#create a tuple
tuplex = tuple("index tuple")
#get index of the first item whose value is passed as parameter
index = tuplex.index("p")
#define the index from which you want to search
index = tuplex.index("p", 5)
#define the segment of the tuple to be searched
index = tuplex.index("e", 3, 6)
#if item not exists in the tuple return ValueError Exception
index = tuplex.index("y")

Sample Output:

('i', 'n', 'd', 'e', 'x', ' ', 't', 'u', 'p', 'l', 'e')                                                       
Traceback (most recent call last):                                                                            
  File "d0e5ee40-30ab-11e7-a6a0-0b37d4d0b2c6.py", line 14, in <module>                                       
    index = tuplex.index("y")                                                                                 
ValueError: tuple.index(x): x not in tuple
