Python – Get all numbers combinations in list
• Last Updated : 03 Jul, 2020

Sometimes, while working with Python lists, we can have a problem in which we need to concatenate each number with other create new number. This kind of problem is peculiar but can have application in many domains such as day-day programming and gaming. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Input : test_list = [7, 3, 4, 5]
Output : [73, 74, 75, 34, 35, 45]

Input : test_list = [2, 5]
Output : 

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + `combination()`
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of finding all combination using combination() and f-strings can be used to perform concatenation.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# All numbers combinations``# Using list comprehension + combinations``from` `itertools ``import` `combinations`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[``59``, ``236``, ``31``, ``38``, ``23``]`` ` `# printing original list ``print``(``"The original list : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# All numbers combinations``# Using list comprehension + combinations``res ``=` `[``int``(f``"{x}{y}"``) ``for` `x, y ``in` `combinations(test_list, ``2``)]``         ` `# printing result ``print``(``"All numbers combinations : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :

The original list : [59, 236, 31, 38, 23]
All numbers combinations : [59236, 5931, 5938, 5923, 23631, 23638, 23623, 3138, 3123, 3823]

Method #2 : Using loop + `str() + int()`
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this we perform the task of forming combinations using brute force and type conversions in nested loop. This also outputs reverse combinations.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# All numbers combinations``# Using loop + str() + int()``from` `itertools ``import` `combinations`` ` `# initializing list``test_list ``=` `[``59``, ``236``, ``31``, ``38``, ``23``]`` ` `# printing original list ``print``(``"The original list : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# All numbers combinations``# Using loop + str() + int()``res ``=` `[]``for` `i ``in` `test_list:``    ``for` `j ``in` `test_list:``        ``if` `j !``=` `i:``           ``res.append(``int``(``str``(i) ``+` `str``(j)))``         ` `# printing result ``print``(``"All numbers combinations : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :

The original list : [59, 236, 31, 38, 23]
All numbers combinations : [59236, 5931, 5938, 5923, 23659, 23631, 23638, 23623, 3159, 31236, 3138, 3123, 3859, 38236, 3831, 3823, 2359, 23236, 2331, 2338]
