Sometimes, while working with tuples, we can have a problem in which we have nested tuples and we need to extract elements that occur singly, i.e are elementary. This kind of problem can have applications in many domains. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this problem can be solved.
Method #1 : Using nested loop +
The above 2 functionalities can be used to solve this particular problem. In this, we iterate each nested tuple and add to set if element has occurred for first time and check for each element before adding.
The original list : [(3, 4, 5), (4, 5, 7), (1, 4)] Unique elements in nested tuples are : [3, 4, 5, 7, 1]
Method #2 : Using
set() + from_iterable()
The combo of above functionalities can be used to solve this. This is done is 2 steps, first, we flatten the nested list and then find distincts using
The original list : [(3, 4, 5), (4, 5, 7), (1, 4)] Unique elements in nested tuples are : [1, 3, 4, 5, 7]
