# Python – Convert Matrix to Custom Tuple Matrix

• Difficulty Level : Hard
• Last Updated : 10 Jul, 2022

Sometimes, while working with Python Matrix, we can have a problem in which we need to perform conversion of a Python Matrix to matrix of tuples which a value attached row-wise custom from external list. This kind of problem can have application in data domains as Matrix is integral DS that is used. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Input : test_list = [[4, 5], [7, 3]], add_list = [‘Gfg’, ‘best’] Output : [(‘Gfg’, 4), (‘Gfg’, 5), (‘best’, 7), (‘best’, 3)] Input : test_list = [[4, 5]], add_list = [‘Gfg’] Output : [(‘Gfg’, 4), (‘Gfg’, 5)]

Method #1 : Using loop + zip() The combination of above functionalities can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of binding custom value to each element of row using zip(). This is brute force way to perform this task.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Convert Matrix to Custom Tuple Matrix``# Using zip() + loop` `# initializing lists``test_list ``=` `[[``4``, ``5``, ``6``], [``6``, ``7``, ``3``], [``1``, ``3``, ``4``]]` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))` `# initializing List elements``add_list ``=` `[``'Gfg'``, ``'is'``, ``'best'``]` `# Convert Matrix to Custom Tuple Matrix``# Using zip() + loop``res ``=` `[]``for` `idx, ele ``in` `zip``(add_list, test_list):``  ``for` `e ``in` `ele:``    ``res.append((idx, e))` `# printing result``print``(``"Matrix after conversion : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output : The original list is : [[4, 5, 6], [6, 7, 3], [1, 3, 4]] Matrix after conversion : [(‘Gfg’, 4), (‘Gfg’, 5), (‘Gfg’, 6), (‘is’, 6), (‘is’, 7), (‘is’, 3), (‘best’, 1), (‘best’, 3), (‘best’, 4)]

Method #2 : Using list comprehension + zip() This is yet another way in which this task can be performed. In this, we perform a similar task as the above method, just as a shorthand.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Convert Matrix to Custom Tuple Matrix``# Using list comprehension + zip()` `# initializing lists``test_list ``=` `[[``4``, ``5``, ``6``], [``6``, ``7``, ``3``], [``1``, ``3``, ``4``]]` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))` `# initializing List elements``add_list ``=` `[``'Gfg'``, ``'is'``, ``'best'``]` `# Convert Matrix to Custom Tuple Matrix``# Using list comprehension + zip()``res ``=` `[(ele1, ele2) ``for` `ele1, sub ``in` `zip``(add_list, test_list) ``for` `ele2 ``in` `sub]` `# printing result``print``(``"Matrix after conversion : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output : The original list is : [[4, 5, 6], [6, 7, 3], [1, 3, 4]] Matrix after conversion : [(‘Gfg’, 4), (‘Gfg’, 5), (‘Gfg’, 6), (‘is’, 6), (‘is’, 7), (‘is’, 3), (‘best’, 1), (‘best’, 3), (‘best’, 4)]

The Time and Space Complexity is the same for both methods:

Time Complexity: O(n2)

Space Complexity: O(n)
