Python – Multiplication across Like Keys Value list elements

Given two dictionaries with value lists, perform element wise like keys multiplication.

Input : test_dict1 = {“Gfg” : [4, 6], “Best” : [8, 6], “is” : [9, 3]},
test_dict2 = {“Gfg”: [8, 4], “Best” : [6, 3], “is” : [9, 8]}
Output : {‘Gfg’: [32, 24], ‘Best’: [48, 18], ‘is’: [81, 24]}
Explanation : 4 * 8 = 32, 6 * 4 = 24 and so on, hence new list value.

Input : test_dict1 = {“Gfg” : [4, 6], “Best” : [8, 6]},
test_dict2 = {“Gfg”: [8, 4], “Best” : [6, 3]}
Output : {‘Gfg’: [32, 24], ‘Best’: [48, 18]}
Explanation : 4 * 8 = 32, 6 * 4 = 24 and so on, hence new list value.

Method : Using dictionary comprehension + zip()

This is one of the ways in which this task can be performed. In this, we perform the task of combining keys using zip() and use zip() again for combining like values. The dictionary comprehension is used to perform construction of new list.

# printing original lists
print("The original dictionary 1 is : " + str(test_dict1))
print("The original dictionary 2 is : " + str(test_dict2))
  
# Using zip() to perform link keys and values 
res = {key: [ele1 * ele2 for (ele1, ele2) in zip(test_dict1[key], val2)] 
       for (key, val2) in zip(test_dict1.keys(), test_dict2.values())}
  
# printing result 
print("The constructed dictionary : " + str(res))

Output

The original dictionary 1 is : {'Gfg': [4, 6, 7], 'Best': [8, 6, 4], 'is': [9, 3, 4]}
The original dictionary 2 is : {'Gfg': [8, 4, 3], 'Best': [6, 3, 1], 'is': [9, 8, 2]}
The constructed dictionary : {'Gfg': [32, 24, 21], 'Best': [48, 18, 4], 'is': [81, 24, 8]}
