# Python – Extract elements with equal frequency as value

• Last Updated : 11 Oct, 2020

Given a list, extract all the elements having same frequency as its value.

Examples:

Input : test_list = [4, 3, 2, 2, 3, 4, 1, 3, 2, 4, 4]
Output : [1, 3, 4]
Explanation : All elements occur equal times as their value.

Input : test_list = [4, 3, 2, 2, 3, 4, 1, 3, 2, 4]
Output : [1, 3]
Explanation : All elements occur equal times as their value.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + count()

In this, task of getting frequency is done using count(), list comprehension is used to iterate for each element, compare and extract.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Extract elements with equal frequency as value``# Using list comprehension + count()`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[``4``, ``3``, ``2``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4``, ``1``, ``3``, ``2``, ``4``, ``4``]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# removing duplicates using set()``# count() for computing frequency``res ``=` `list``(``set``([ele ``for` `ele ``in` `test_list ``if` `test_list.count(ele) ``=``=` `ele]))`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Filtered elements : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output

```The original list is : [4, 3, 2, 2, 3, 4, 1, 3, 2, 4, 4]
Filtered elements : [1, 3, 4]
```

Method #2 : Using filter() + lambda + count()

In this, we perform task of filtering elements using filter() and lambda, count() again is used to get count of all the elements.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# Extract elements with equal frequency as value``# Using filter() + lambda + count()`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[``4``, ``3``, ``2``, ``2``, ``3``, ``4``, ``1``, ``3``, ``2``, ``4``, ``4``]`` ` `# printing original list``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# removing duplicates using set()``# count() for computing frequency``# filter used to perform filtering ``res ``=` `list``(``set``(``list``(``filter``(``lambda` `ele : test_list.count(ele) ``=``=` `ele, test_list))))`` ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Filtered elements : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output

```The original list is : [4, 3, 2, 2, 3, 4, 1, 3, 2, 4, 4]
Filtered elements : [1, 3, 4]
```
