# Python | Get sum of tuples having same first value

Given a list of tuple, the task is to sum the tuples having same first value.

Examples:

```Input: [(1, 13), (2, 190), (3, 82), (1, 12)]
Output: [(1, 25), (2, 190), (3, 82)]

Input: [(1, 13), (1, 190), (3, 25), (1, 12)]
Output: [(1, 215), (3, 25)]
```

Let’s discuss the different ways we can do this task.

Method #1: Using `map()`

 `# Python code to get sum of tuples having same first value ` ` `  `# Initialisation of list of tuple ` `Input` `=` `[(``1``, ``13``), (``1``, ``190``), (``3``, ``25``), (``1``, ``12``)] ` ` `  `d ``=` `{x:``0` `for` `x, _ ``in` `Input``} ` ` `  `for` `name, num ``in` `Input``: d[name] ``+``=` `num ` ` `  `# using map ` `Output ``=` `list``(``map``(``tuple``, d.items())) ` ` `  `# printing output ` `print``(Output) `

Output:

```[(1, 215), (3, 25)]
```

Method #2: Using `defaultdict`

 `# Python code to sum list of tuples having same first value ` ` `  `# Importing ` `from` `collections ``import` `defaultdict ` ` `  `# Initialisation of list of tuple ` `Input` `=` `[(``2``, ``190``), (``1``, ``13``), (``1``, ``12``),  ` `         ``(``2``, ``14``), (``3``, ``82``), (``1``, ``70``)] ` ` `  `# Initialisation of defaultdict ` `output ``=` `defaultdict(``int``) ` ` `  `for` `k, v ``in` `Input``: ` `    ``output[k] ``+``=` `v ` ` `  `# Printing output ` `print``(``list``(output.items())) `

Output:

```[(1, 95), (2, 204), (3, 82)]
```
