# Python Group by matching second tuple value in list of tuples

• Last Updated : 11 Dec, 2020

Given a list of tuples, the task is to group the tuples by matching the second element in the tuples. We can achieve this using dictionary by checking the second element in each tuple.

Examples:

```Input : [(20, 80), (31, 80), (1, 22), (88, 11), (27, 11)]
Output: {80: [(20, 80), (31, 80)],
11: [(88, 11), (27, 11)],
22: [(1, 22)]}

Input : [(20, 'Geek'), (31, 'Geek'), (88, 'NotGeek'), (27, 'NotGeek')]
Output: {'NotGeek': [(88, 'NotGeek'), (27, 'NotGeek')],
'Geek': [(20, 'Geek'), (31, 'Geek')]}

```

Code #1:

 `# Python program to group tuples by matching ``# second tuple value in list of tuples`` ` `# Initialisation ``Input` `=` `[(``20``, ``80``), (``31``, ``80``), (``1``, ``22``), (``88``, ``11``), (``27``, ``11``)]`` ` `Output ``=` `{}``for` `x, y ``in` `Input``:``    ``if` `y ``in` `Output:``        ``Output[y].append((x, y))``    ``else``:``        ``Output[y] ``=` `[(x, y)]`` ` `# Printing Output``print``(Output)`
Output:

```{80: [(20, 80), (31, 80)], 11: [(88, 11), (27, 11)], 22: [(1, 22)]}
```

Code #2:

 `# Python program to group tuples by matching ``# second tuple value in list of tuples`` ` `# Initialisation ``Input` `=` `[(``20``, ``'Geek'``), (``31``, ``'Geek'``), (``88``, ``'NotGeek'``), (``27``, ``'NotGeek'``)]`` ` `Output ``=` `{}``for` `x, y ``in` `Input``:``    ``if` `y ``in` `Output:``        ``Output[y].append((x, y))``    ``else``:``        ``Output[y] ``=` `[(x, y)]`` ` `# Printing Output``print``(Output)`
Output:
```{'NotGeek': [(88, 'NotGeek'), (27, 'NotGeek')],
'Geek': [(20, 'Geek'), (31, 'Geek')]}
```
