Python | Above K elements summation

• Last Updated : 10 Feb, 2020

Many times we might have problem in which we need to find summation rather than the actual numbers and more often, the result is conditioned.. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this problem can be successfully solved.

Method #1 : Using loop
This problem can easily be solved using loop with a brute force approach in which we can just check for the sum as we iterate and append it in a new list as we proceed forward.

 # Python3 code to demonstrate# Above K elements summation# using loop  # initializing list test_list = [12, 10, 18, 15, 8, 18]  # printing original listprint("The original list : " + str(test_list))  # using loop# Above K elements summationres = 0for idx in range(0, len(test_list)) :    if test_list[idx] > 10:        res += test_list[idx]  # print resultprint("The summation of elements greater than 10 : " + str(res))
Output :
The original list : [12, 10, 18, 15, 8, 18]
The summation of elements greater than 10 : 63

Method #2 : Using list comprehension + sum()
The combination of these two function can also perform this particular task efficiently and in one line. The sum function is used to perform summation of elements.

 # Python3 code to demonstrate# Above K elements summation# using list comprehension + sum()  # initializing list test_list = [12, 10, 18, 15, 8, 18]  # printing original listprint("The original list : " + str(test_list))  # using list comprehension + sum()# index of matching elementres = sum(ele for ele in test_list if ele > 10)  # print resultprint("The summation of elements greater than 10 : " + str(res))
Output :
The original list : [12, 10, 18, 15, 8, 18]
The summation of elements greater than 10 : 63
