# Python – Extract Item with Maximum Tuple Value

Sometimes, while working with Python dictionaries, we can have a problem in which we need to extract the item with maximum value of value tuple index. This kind of problem can have application in domains such as web development. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Input : test_dict = {‘gfg’ : (4, 6), ‘is’ : (7, 8), ‘best’ : (8, 2)}, tup_idx = 0
Output : (‘best’, (8, 2))

Input : test_dict = {‘gfg’ : (4, 6), ‘best’ : (8, 2)}, tup_idx = 1
Output : (‘gfg’ : (4, 6))

Method #1 : Using` max() + lambda`
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of extracting maximum item using max, and value parameter is checked using lambda.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Extract Item with Maximum Tuple Value ` `# Using max() + lambda ` ` `  `# initializing dictionary ` `test_dict ``=` `{``'gfg'` `: (``4``, ``6``), ` `             ``'is'` `: (``7``, ``8``), ` `             ``'best'` `: (``8``, ``2``)} ` ` `  `# printing original dictionary ` `print``(``"The original dictionary is : "` `+` `str``(test_dict)) ` ` `  `# initializing tuple index  ` `# 0 based indexing ` `tup_idx ``=` `1` ` `  `# Extract Item with Maximum Tuple Value ` `# Using max() + lambda ` `res ``=` `max``(test_dict.items(), key ``=` `lambda` `ele: ele[``1``][tup_idx]) ` `     `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"The extracted maximum element item : "` `+` `str``(res))  `

Output :

```The original dictionary is : {'gfg': (4, 6), 'is': (7, 8), 'best': (8, 2)}
The extracted maximum element item : ('is', (7, 8))
```

Method #2: Using `max() + map() + itemgetter() + zip()`
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of zipping key and required tuple index value extracted using itemgetter() using zip(). Then maximum element is extracted using max().

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Extract Item with Maximum Tuple Value ` `# Using max() + map() + itemgetter() + zip() ` `from` `operator ``import` `itemgetter ` ` `  `# initializing dictionary ` `test_dict ``=` `{``'gfg'` `: (``4``, ``6``), ` `             ``'is'` `: (``7``, ``8``), ` `             ``'best'` `: (``8``, ``2``)} ` ` `  `# printing original dictionary ` `print``(``"The original dictionary is : "` `+` `str``(test_dict)) ` ` `  `# initializing tuple index  ` `# 0 based indexing ` `tup_idx ``=` `1` ` `  `# Extract Item with Maximum Tuple Value ` `# Using max() + map() + itemgetter() + zip() ` `res ``=` `max``(``zip``(test_dict.keys(), ``map``(itemgetter(tup_idx), inventory.values())), key ``=` `itemgetter(``1``))[``0``] ` `res ``=` `(res, test_dict[res]) ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"The extracted maximum element item : "` `+` `str``(res))  `

Output :

```The original dictionary is : {'gfg': (4, 6), 'is': (7, 8), 'best': (8, 2)}
The extracted maximum element item : ('is', (7, 8))
```
