# Python – Incremental K sized Row Matrix Initialization

• Last Updated : 01 Mar, 2020

Sometimes, while working with Python, we can have a problem in which we need to perform initialization of matrix with Incremental numbers. This kind of application can come in Data Science domain. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using loop + list slicing
This task can be performed in brute way using loop. In this, we run a loop skipping by K (size of row required), to adjust numbers addition ahead.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate ``# Incremental K sized Row Matrix Initialization``# using loop + list slicing`` ` `# Initialization of row size ``K ``=` `3`` ` `# Incremental K sized Row Matrix Initialization``# using loop + list slicing``res ``=` `[]``for` `idx ``in` `range``(``1``, ``10``, K):``    ``sub ``=` `[idx, idx ``+` `1``, idx ``+` `2``]``    ``res.append(sub)`` ` `# printing result ``print` `(``"The Incremental Initialized Matrix is : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The Incremental Initialized Matrix is : [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9]]
```

Method #2 : Using list comprehension
This is just another way to perform this task. This performs in similar way as above, but in a shorter way.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate ``# Incremental K sized Row Matrix Initialization``# using list comprehension`` ` `# Initialization of row size ``K ``=` `3`` ` `# Incremental K sized Row Matrix Initialization``# using list comprehension``res ``=` `[[i, i ``+` `1``, i ``+` `2``] ``for` `i ``in` `range``(``1``, ``10``, K)]`` ` `# printing result ``print` `(``"The Incremental Initialized Matrix is : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The Incremental Initialized Matrix is : [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9]]
```
