# Python – Add K to Minimum element in Column Tuple List

Sometimes, while working with Tuple records, we can have a problem in which we need to perform task of adding certain element to max/ min element to each column of Tuple list. This kind of problem can have application in web development domain. Let’s discuss a certain way in which this task can be performed.

Input : test_list = [(4, 5), (3, 2), (2, 2), (4, 6), (3, 2), (4, 5)], K = 2
Output : [(4, 5), (3, 4), (4, 4), (4, 6), (3, 4), (4, 5)]

Input : test_list = [(4, 5), (3, 2), (2, 2), (4, 6), (3, 2), (4, 5)], K = 3
Output : [(4, 5), (3, 5), (5, 5), (4, 6), (3, 5), (4, 5)]

Method : Using` min()` + loop
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of extracting min’s for each column using min() and addition of K using logic compiled in loop.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Add K to Minimum element in Column Tuple List ` `# Using min() + loop ` ` `  `# initializing lists ` `test_list ``=` `[(``4``, ``5``), (``3``, ``2``), (``2``, ``2``), (``4``, ``6``), (``3``, ``2``), (``4``, ``5``)] ` ` `  `# printing original list ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` ` `  `# initializing K  ` `K ``=` `5` ` `  `# Add K to Minimum element in Column Tuple List ` `# Using min() + loop ` `a_min ``=` `min``(a ``for` `a, b ``in` `test_list) ` `b_min ``=` `min``(b ``for` `a, b ``in` `test_list) ` `res ``=` `[] ` ` `  `for` `a, b ``in` `test_list: ` `    ``if` `a ``=``=` `a_min ``and` `b ``=``=` `b_min: ` `        ``res.append((a ``+` `K, b ``+` `K)) ` `    ``elif` `a ``=``=` `a_min : ` `        ``res.append((a ``+` `K, b)) ` `    ``elif` `b ``=``=` `b_min: ` `        ``res.append((a, b ``+` `K)) ` `    ``else` `: ` `        ``res.append((a, b)) ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"Tuple after modification : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [(4, 5), (3, 2), (2, 2), (4, 6), (3, 2), (4, 5)]
Tuple after modification : [(4, 5), (3, 7), (7, 7), (4, 6), (3, 7), (4, 5)]
```
