# Python – Maximum of String Integer list

• Last Updated : 21 Feb, 2022

Sometimes, while working with data, we can have a problem in which we receive a series of lists with data in string format, which we wish to find the max of each string list integer. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.
Method #1 : Using loop + int()
This is the brute force method to perform this task. In this, we run a loop for the entire list, convert each string to integer and perform maximization listwise and store in a separate list.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Maximum of String Integer``# using loop + int()` `# initialize list``test_list ``=` `[[``'1'``, ``'4'``], [``'5'``, ``'6'``], [``'7'``, ``'10'``]]` `# printing original list``print``("The original ``list` `: " ``+` `str``(test_list))` `# Maximum of String Integer``# using loop + int()``res ``=` `[]``for` `sub ``in` `test_list:``    ``par_max ``=` `0``    ``for` `ele ``in` `sub:``        ``par_max ``=` `max``(par_max, ``int``(ele))``    ``res.append(par_max)` `# printing result``print``("``List` `after maximization of nested string lists : " ``+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original list : [['1', '4'], ['5', '6'], ['7', '10']]
List after maximization of nested string lists : [4, 6, 10]```

Method #2 : Using max() + int() + list comprehension
This is the shorthand with the help of which this task can be performed. In this, we run a loop on lists using list comprehension and extract maximization using max().

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Maximum of String Integer``# using max() + int() + list comprehension` `# initialize list``test_list ``=` `[[``'1'``, ``'4'``], [``'5'``, ``'6'``], [``'7'``, ``'10'``]]` `# printing original list``print``("The original ``list` `: " ``+` `str``(test_list))` `# Maximum of String Integer``# using max() + int() + list comprehension``res ``=` `[``max``(``int``(ele) ``for` `ele ``in` `sub) ``for` `sub ``in` `test_list]` `# printing result``print``("``List` `after maximization of nested string lists : " ``+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original list : [['1', '4'], ['5', '6'], ['7', '10']]
List after maximization of nested string lists : [4, 6, 10]```
