# Python | K Divided Indices List

• Last Updated : 27 Feb, 2020

Sometimes, while working with Python lists, we can have a problem in which we wish to find Modulo K elements. This task can occur in many domains such as web development and while working with Databases. We might sometimes, require to just find the indices of them. Let’s discuss certain way to find indices of modulo K elements.

Method #1 : Using loop
This is brute force method in which this task can be performed. In this, we check for % K element in list and append its index accordingly.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# K Divident Indices List``# using loop `` ` `# initialize list ``test_list ``=` `[``5``, ``6``, ``10``, ``4``, ``7``, ``1``, ``19``] `` ` `# printing original list ``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) `` ` `# initializing K ``K ``=` `5`` ` `# K Divident Indices List``# using loop ``res ``=` `[] ``for` `idx, ele ``in` `enumerate``(test_list): ``    ``if` `ele ``%` `K ``=``=` `0``: ``        ``res.append(idx) ``         ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Indices list modulo K elements is : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [5, 6, 10, 4, 7, 1, 19]
Indices list modulo K elements is : [0, 2]
```

Method #2 : Using list comprehension
This is the shorthand by which this task can be performed. This method works in similar way as the above method. The difference is that it’s a one liner.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ``# K Divident Indices List``# using list comprehension `` ` `# initialize list ``test_list ``=` `[``5``, ``6``, ``10``, ``4``, ``7``, ``1``, ``19``] `` ` `# printing original list ``print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list))`` ` `# initializing K``K ``=` `5`` ` `# K Divident Indices List``# using list comprehension ``res ``=` `[idx ``for` `idx, ele ``in` `enumerate``(test_list) ``if` `ele ``%` `K ``=``=` `0``] ``         ` `# printing result ``print``(``"Indices list modulo K elements is : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [5, 6, 10, 4, 7, 1, 19]
Indices list modulo K elements is : [0, 2]
```
