# Python – Elements frequency in Tuple

• Last Updated : 02 Sep, 2020

Given a Tuple, find frequency of each element.

Input : test_tup = (4, 5, 4, 5, 6, 6, 5)
Output : {4: 2, 5: 3, 6: 2}
Explanation : Frequency of 4 is 2 and so on..

Input : test_tup = (4, 5, 4, 5, 6, 6, 6)
Output : {4: 2, 5: 2, 6: 3}
Explanation : Frequency of 4 is 2 and so on..

Method #1  Using defaultdict()

In this, we perform task of getting all elements and assigning frequency using defauldict which maps each element with key and then frequency can be incremented.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Elements frequency in Tuple``# Using defaultdict()``from` `collections ``import` `defaultdict`` ` `# initializing tuple``test_tup ``=` `(``4``, ``5``, ``4``, ``5``, ``6``, ``6``, ``5``, ``5``, ``4``)`` ` `# printing original tuple``print``(``"The original tuple is : "` `+` `str``(test_tup))`` ` `res ``=` `defaultdict(``int``)``for` `ele ``in` `test_tup:``     ` `    ``# incrementing frequency``    ``res[ele] ``+``=` `1`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Tuple elements frequency is : "` `+` `str``(``dict``(res))) `
Output
```The original tuple is : (4, 5, 4, 5, 6, 6, 5, 5, 4)
Tuple elements frequency is : {4: 3, 5: 4, 6: 2}
```

Method #2 : Using Counter()

This is straight forward way to solve this problem. In this, we just employ this function and it returns frequency of elements in container, in this case tuple.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Elements frequency in Tuple``# Using Counter()``from` `collections ``import` `Counter`` ` `# initializing tuple``test_tup ``=` `(``4``, ``5``, ``4``, ``5``, ``6``, ``6``, ``5``, ``5``, ``4``)`` ` `# printing original tuple``print``(``"The original tuple is : "` `+` `str``(test_tup))`` ` `# converting result back from defauldict to dict ``res ``=` `dict``(Counter(test_tup))`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Tuple elements frequency is : "` `+` `str``(res)) `
Output
```The original tuple is : (4, 5, 4, 5, 6, 6, 5, 5, 4)
Tuple elements frequency is : {4: 3, 5: 4, 6: 2}
```
