# Python – Convert dictionary to K sized dictionaries

• Last Updated : 02 Sep, 2020

Given a Dictionary, divide dictionary into K sized different dictionaries list.

Input : test_dict = {‘Gfg’ : 1, ‘is’ : 2, ‘best’ : 3, ‘for’ : 4, ‘geeks’ : 5, ‘CS’ : 6}, K = 3
Output : [{‘Gfg’: 1, ‘is’: 2, ‘best’: 3}, {‘for’: 4, ‘geeks’: 5, ‘CS’: 6}]
Explanation : Divided into size of 3 keys.

Input : test_dict = {‘Gfg’ : 1, ‘is’ : 2, ‘best’ : 3, ‘for’ : 4}, K = 2
Output : [{‘Gfg’: 1, ‘is’: 2}, {‘best’: 3, ‘for’: 4}]
Explanation : Divided into size of 2 keys.

Method : Using loop

In this, we iterate for all the keys in dictionary using loop and bifurcate according to size  and append to new list.

Output
```The original dictionary is : {'Gfg': 1, 'is': 2, 'best': 3, 'for': 4, 'geeks': 5, 'CS': 6}
The converted list : [{'Gfg': 1, 'is': 2}, {'best': 3, 'for': 4}, {'geeks': 5, 'CS': 6}]
