# Python | Adding N to Kth tuple element

• Last Updated : 29 Oct, 2019

Many times, while working with records, we can have a problem in which we need to change the value of tuple elements. This is a common problem while working with tuples. Let’s discuss certain ways in which N can be added to Kth element of tuple in list.

Method #1 : Using loop
Using loops this task can be performed. In this, we just iterate the list to change the Kth element by predefined value N in code.

Output :

```The original list is : [(4, 5, 6), (7, 4, 2), (9, 10, 11)]
The tuple after adding N to Kth element : [(4, 8, 6), (7, 7, 2), (9, 13, 11)]
```

Method #2 : Using list comprehension
This method is having the same approach as the above method, just reduces lines of code using list comprehension functionality to make code compact by size.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Adding N to Kth tuple element``# Using list comprehension`` ` `# Initializing list``test_list ``=` `[(``4``, ``5``, ``6``), (``7``, ``4``, ``2``), (``9``, ``10``, ``11``)]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# Initializing N ``N ``=` `3` ` ` `# Initializing K ``K ``=` `1`` ` `# Adding N to Kth tuple element``# Using list comprehension``res ``=` `[(a, b ``+` `N, c) ``for` `a, b, c ``in` `test_list]`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"The tuple after adding N to Kth element : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original list is : [(4, 5, 6), (7, 4, 2), (9, 10, 11)]
The tuple after adding N to Kth element : [(4, 8, 6), (7, 7, 2), (9, 13, 11)]
```
