Python – N Random Tuples list

Sometimes, while working with Python records, we can have a problem in which we need to construct random tuple list. This can have application in many domains using gaming and day-day programming. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Input :
N = 4
R = 6
Output : [(5, 6), (1, 0), (1, 3), (2, 3)]
Input :
N = 8
R = 4
Output : [(2, 3), (4, 1), (2, 0), (4, 3), (4, 2), (0, 2), (1, 4), (0, 1)]

Method #1 : Using list comprehension + sample()
This is one of the ways in which this task can be performed. In this, random number generation takes place using sample() which, when given pool of numbers extracts random numbers for forming pairs, which are paired using list comprehension.

# Python3 code to demonstrate working of 
# N Random Tuples list
# Using list comprehension + sample()
import random
  
# initializing N
N = 5
  
# initializing Tuple element range 
R = 10
  
# N Random Tuples list
# Using list comprehension + sample()
res = [divmod(ele, R + 1) for ele in random.sample(range((R + 1) * (R + 1)), N)]
  
# printing result 
print("The N random tuples : " + str(res))

Output :

The N random tuples : [(2, 5), (6, 10), (4, 7), (10, 2), (2, 2)]

 

Method #2 : Using product() + sample()
The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform task of producing numbers in a range using product() and sample() is used to extract N random numbers from them.

# printing result 
print("The N random tuples : " + str(res))

The N random tuples : [(2, 5), (6, 10), (4, 7), (10, 2), (2, 2)]
