# Python – Maximum frequency in Tuple

Sometimes, while working with Python tuples, we can have a problem in which we need to find the maximum frequency element in tuple. Tuple, being quite popular container, this type of problems are common across web development domain. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Input : test_tuple = (6, 7, 10, 11, 10)
Output : 10

Input : test_tuple = (5, 5, 5)
Output : 5

Method #1 : Using `count()` + loop
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. This is brute force approach to solve this problem. In this, we use count() to perform counting of elements.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Maximum frequency in Tuple ` `# Using loop + count() ` ` `  `# initializing tuple ` `test_tuple ``=` `(``6``, ``7``, ``8``, ``6``, ``7``, ``10``) ` ` `  `# printing original tuple ` `print``(``"The original tuple : "` `+` `str``(test_tuple)) ` ` `  `# Maximum frequency in Tuple ` `# Using loop + count() ` `cnt ``=` `0` `res ``=` `test_tuple[``0``]  ` `for` `ele ``in` `test_tuple:  ` `    ``curr_freq ``=` `test_tuple.count(ele)  ` `    ``if``(curr_freq> cnt):  ` `        ``cnt ``=` `curr_freq  ` `        ``res ``=` `ele  ` `         `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"Maximum element frequency tuple : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original tuple : (6, 7, 8, 6, 7, 10)
Maximum element frequency tuple : 6
```

Method #2 : Using `max() + Counter()` + lambda
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we use Counter() to find the frequency of all elements and max() is used to find maximum of it.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Maximum frequency in Tuple ` `# Using max() + Counter() + lambda ` `from` `collections ``import` `Counter ` ` `  `# initializing tuple ` `test_tuple ``=` `(``6``, ``7``, ``8``, ``6``, ``7``, ``10``) ` ` `  `# printing original tuple ` `print``(``"The original tuple : "` `+` `str``(test_tuple)) ` ` `  `# Maximum frequency in Tuple ` `# Using max() + Counter() + lambda ` `res ``=` `max``(Counter(test_tuple).items(), key ``=` `lambda` `ele : ele[``1``]) ` `         `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"Maximum element frequency tuple : "` `+` `str``(res[``0``])) `

Output :

```The original tuple : (6, 7, 8, 6, 7, 10)
Maximum element frequency tuple : 6
```
