Sometimes, while working with data, we can have a problem in which we need to find cumulative result. This can be of any type, product or summation. Here we are gonna discuss about adjacent element multiplication. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using `zip()` + generator expression + `tuple()`
The combination of above functionalities can be used to perform this task. In this, we use generator expression to provide multiplication logic and simultaneous element pairing is done by `zip()`. The result is converted to tuple form using `tuple()`.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Adjacent element multiplication``# using zip() + generator expression + tuple`` ` `# initialize tuple``test_tup ``=` `(``1``, ``5``, ``7``, ``8``, ``10``)`` ` `# printing original tuple``print``(``"The original tuple : "` `+` `str``(test_tup))`` ` `# Adjacent element multiplication``# using zip() + generator expression + tuple``res ``=` `tuple``(i ``*` `j ``for` `i, j ``in` `zip``(test_tup, test_tup[``1``:]))`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"Resultant tuple after multiplication : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original tuple : (1, 5, 7, 8, 10)
Resultant tuple after multiplication : (5, 35, 56, 80)
```

Method #2 : Using `tuple() + map()` + lambda
The combination of above functions can also help to perform this task. In this, we perform multiplication and binding logic using lambda function. The `map()` is used to iterate to each element and at end result is converted by `tuple()`.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Adjacent element multiplication``# using tuple() + map() + lambda`` ` `# initialize tuple``test_tup ``=` `(``1``, ``5``, ``7``, ``8``, ``10``)`` ` `# printing original tuple``print``(``"The original tuple : "` `+` `str``(test_tup))`` ` `# Adjacent element multiplication``# using tuple() + map() + lambda``res ``=` `tuple``(``map``(``lambda` `i, j : i ``*` `j, test_tup[``1``:], test_tup[:``-``1``]))`` ` `# printing result``print``(``"Resultant tuple after multiplication : "` `+` `str``(res))`
Output :
```The original tuple : (1, 5, 7, 8, 10)
Resultant tuple after multiplication : (5, 35, 56, 80)
```
