# Python | Combining tuples in list of tuples

• Last Updated : 13 May, 2019

Sometimes, we might have to perform certain problems related to tuples in which we need to segregate the tuple elements to combine with the each element of complex tuple element( such as list ). This can have application in situations we need to combine values to form a whole. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this can be performed.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension
We can solve this particular problem using the list comprehension technique in which we can iterate for each tuple list and join it with other tuple attribute to join.

Output :

The original list : [([1, 2, 3], ‘gfg’), ([5, 4, 3], ‘cs’)]
The list tuple combination : [(1, ‘gfg’), (2, ‘gfg’), (3, ‘gfg’), (5, ‘cs’), (4, ‘cs’), (3, ‘cs’)]

Method #2 : Using `product()` + list comprehension
Apart from using the tuple for generation of tuples, the product function can be used to get Cartesian product of list elements with tuple element, using the iterator internally.

Output :

The original list : [([1, 2, 3], ‘gfg’), ([5, 4, 3], ‘cs’)]
The list tuple combination : [(1, ‘gfg’), (2, ‘gfg’), (3, ‘gfg’), (5, ‘cs’), (4, ‘cs’), (3, ‘cs’)]
