Sometimes, while working with data, we can have a problem in which we need to perform tuple multiplication among all the tuples in list. This can have application in many domains. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using combinations() + list comprehension
This problem can be solved using combinations of above functions. In this, we use combinations() to generate all possible combination among tuples and list comprehension is used to feed product logic.




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Pair Product combinations
# Using list comprehension + combinations
from itertools import combinations
  
# initialize list 
test_list = [(2, 4), (6, 7), (5, 1), (6, 10)]
  
# printing original list 
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# Pair Product combinations
# Using list comprehension + combinations
res = [(b1 * a1, b2 * a2) for (a1, a2), (b1, b2) in combinations(test_list, 2)] 
  
# printing result
print("The Product pair combinations are : " + str(res))

Output :

The original list : [(2, 4), (6, 7), (5, 1), (6, 10)]
The Product pair combinations are : [(12, 28), (10, 4), (12, 40), (30, 7), (36, 70), (30, 10)]

 

Method #2 : Using list comprehension + zip() + operator.mul + combinations()
The combinations of above methods can also solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of product using mul() and the like indexed elements are linked using zip().




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Pair Product combinations
# Using list comprehension + zip() + operator.mul + combinations()
from itertools import combinations
import operator
  
# initialize list 
test_list = [(2, 4), (6, 7), (5, 1), (6, 10)]
  
# printing original list 
print("The original list : " + str(test_list))
  
# Pair Product combinations
# Using list comprehension + zip() + operator.mul + combinations()
res = [(operator.mul(*a), operator.mul(*b))\
    for a, b in (zip(y, x) for x, y in combinations(test_list, 2))]
  
# printing result
print("The Product pair combinations are : " + str(res))

Output :

The original list : [(2, 4), (6, 7), (5, 1), (6, 10)]
The Product pair combinations are : [(12, 28), (10, 4), (12, 40), (30, 7), (36, 70), (30, 10)]
