# Python – Dictionary items in value range

Given a range of values, extract all the items whose keys lie in range of values.

Input : {‘Gfg’ : 6, ‘is’ : 7, ‘best’ : 9, ‘for’ : 8, ‘geeks’ : 11}, i, j = 9, 12
Output : {‘best’ : 9, ‘geeks’ : 11}
Explanation : Keys within 9 and 11 range extracted.

Input : {‘Gfg’ : 6, ‘is’ : 7, ‘best’ : 9, ‘for’ : 8, ‘geeks’ : 11}, i, j = 14, 18
Output : {}
Explanation : No values in range.

Method #1 : Using loop

This is brute way in which this task can be performed. In this, we run a loop for all the keys with conditional checks for range of values.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Dictionary items in value range ` `# Using loop ` ` `  `# initializing dictionary ` `test_dict ``=` `{``'Gfg'` `: ``6``, ``'is'` `: ``7``, ``'best'` `: ``9``, ``'for'` `: ``8``, ``'geeks'` `: ``11``}  ` ` `  `# printing original dictionary ` `print``(``"The original dictionary is : "` `+` `str``(test_dict)) ` ` `  `# initializing range  ` `i, j ``=` `8``, ``12` ` `  `# using loop to iterate through all keys ` `res ``=` `dict``() ` `for` `key, val ``in` `test_dict.items(): ` `    ``if` `int``(val) >``=` `i ``and` `int``(val) <``=` `j: ` `        ``res[key] ``=` `val ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"The extracted dictionary : "` `+` `str``(res))  `

Output

```The original dictionary is : {'Gfg': 6, 'is': 7, 'best': 9, 'for': 8, 'geeks': 11}
The extracted dictionary : {'best': 9, 'for': 8, 'geeks': 11}
```

Method #2 : Using filter() + lambda + dictionary comprehension

The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform task of filtering using filter() and lambda is used for conditional checks.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Dictionary items in value range ` `# Using filter() + lambda + dictionary comprehension  ` ` `  `# initializing dictionary ` `test_dict ``=` `{``'Gfg'` `: ``6``, ``'is'` `: ``7``, ``'best'` `: ``9``, ``'for'` `: ``8``, ``'geeks'` `: ``11``}  ` ` `  `# printing original dictionary ` `print``(``"The original dictionary is : "` `+` `str``(test_dict)) ` ` `  `# initializing range  ` `i, j ``=` `8``, ``12` ` `  `# using dictionary comprehension to compile result in one  ` `res ``=` `{key: val ``for` `key, val ``in` `filter``(``lambda` `sub: ``int``(sub[``1``]) >``=` `i ``and` `                                   ``int``(sub[``1``]) <``=` `j, test_dict.items())} ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"The extracted dictionary : "` `+` `str``(res))  `

Output

```The original dictionary is : {'Gfg': 6, 'is': 7, 'best': 9, 'for': 8, 'geeks': 11}
The extracted dictionary : {'best': 9, 'for': 8, 'geeks': 11}
```
