Python | Least Value test in Dictionary
  • Last Updated : 29 Dec, 2019

While working with dictionary, we might come to a problem in which we require to ensure that all the values are atleast K in dictionary. This kind of problem can occur while checking status of start or checking for a bug/action that could have occurred. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using all() + dictionary comprehension
The combination of above functions can be used to perform the following task. The all function checks for each key and dictionary comprehension checks for the atleast K value.




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Least Value test in Dictionary
# Using all() + dictionary comprehension
  
# Initialize dictionary
test_dict = {'gfg' : 8, 'is' : 10, 'best' : 11}
  
# Printing original dictionary 
print("The original dictionary is : " + str(test_dict))
  
# Initialize K 
K = 8
  
# using all() + dictionary comprehension
# Least Value test in Dictionary
res = all(x >= K for x in test_dict.values())
  
# printing result 
print("Does all keys have atleast K value ? : " + str(res))
Output :
The original dictionary is : {'gfg': 8, 'best': 11, 'is': 10}
Does all keys have atleast K value ? : True

 

Method #2 : Using loop
This problem can be solved using brute force strategy using loop and we compare each key with K and return True if all elements are atleast K.






# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Least Value test in Dictionary
# Using loop
  
# Initialize dictionary
test_dict = {'gfg' : 8, 'is' : 10, 'best' : 11}
  
# Printing original dictionary 
print("The original dictionary is : " + str(test_dict))
  
# Initialize K 
K = 8
  
# using loop
# Least Value test in Dictionary
res = True
for key in test_dict:
    if test_dict[key] < K:
        res = False
  
# printing result 
print("Does all keys have atleast K value ? : " + str(res))
Output :
The original dictionary is : {'gfg': 8, 'best': 11, 'is': 10}
Does all keys have atleast K value ? : True
