Python | Adding N to Kth tuple element

• Last Updated : 25 Jan, 2023

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.

Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Adding N to Kth tuple element``# Using loop` `# 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 loop``res ``=` `[]``for` `i ``in` `range``(``0``, ``len``(test_list)):``    ``res.append((test_list[i][``0``], test_list[i][K] ``+` `N, test_list[i][``2``]))` `# 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)]
```

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

 `# 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)]
```

Method #3: Using map() and lambda function
This method is an alternative to using loops and list comprehension, it uses the map function to iterate over the list and a lambda function to add N to the Kth element of each tuple.

Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Adding N to Kth tuple element``# Using map() and lambda function``  ` `# 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 map() and lambda function``res ``=` `list``(``map``(``lambda` `x: (x[``0``], x[K]``+``N, x[``2``]), test_list))``  ` `# printing result``print``(``"The tuple after adding N to Kth element : "` `+` `str``(res))``#This code is contributed by Edula Vinay Kumar Reddy`

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)]
```

Time complexity: O(n)
Auxiliary Space: O(n)
