# Python | Nth tuple index Subtraction by K

Many times, while working with records, we can have a problem in which we need to change the value of tuple elements. This is a common problem while working with tuples. Let’s discuss certain ways in which K can be subtracted to Nth element of tuple in list.

Method #1 : Using loop
Using loops this task can be performed. In this, we just iterate the list to change the Nth element by predefined value K in code.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Nth tuple element Subtraction by K ` `# Using loop ` ` `  `# Initializing list ` `test_list ``=` `[(``4``, ``5``, ``6``), (``7``, ``4``, ``2``), (``9``, ``10``, ``11``)] ` ` `  `# printing original list ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` ` `  `# Initializing N  ` `N ``=` `1` ` `  `# Initializing K  ` `K ``=` `3` ` `  `# Nth tuple element Subtraction by K ` `# Using loop ` `res ``=` `[] ` `for` `i ``in` `range``(``0``, ``len``(test_list)): ` `    ``res.append((test_list[i][``0``], test_list[i][N] ``-` `K, test_list[i][``2``])) ` ` `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"The tuple after removing K from Nth element : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [(4, 5, 6), (7, 4, 2), (9, 10, 11)]
The tuple after removing K from Nth element : [(4, 2, 6), (7, 1, 2), (9, 7, 11)]
```

Method #2 : Using list comprehension
This method is having the same approach as the above method, just reduces lines of code using list comprehension functionality to make code compact by size.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Nth tuple element Subtraction by K ` `# Using list comprehension ` ` `  `# Initializing list ` `test_list ``=` `[(``4``, ``5``, ``6``), (``7``, ``4``, ``2``), (``9``, ``10``, ``11``)] ` ` `  `# printing original list ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` ` `  `# Initializing N  ` `N ``=` `1` ` `  `# Initializing K  ` `K ``=` `3` ` `  `# Nth tuple element Subtraction by K ` `# Using list comprehension ` `res ``=` `[(a, b ``-` `K, c) ``for` `a, b, c ``in` `test_list] ` ` `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"The tuple after removing K from Nth element : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [(4, 5, 6), (7, 4, 2), (9, 10, 11)]
The tuple after removing K from Nth element : [(4, 2, 6), (7, 1, 2), (9, 7, 11)]
```
