# Python program to count Bidirectional Tuple Pairs

• Last Updated : 01 Dec, 2022

Given Tuple list, compute bidirectional tuples.

Input : test_list = [(5, 6), (1, 2), (6, 5), (9, 1), (6, 5), (2, 1)]
Output : 3
Explanation : (1, 2), (2, 1); (5, 6) -> [(6, 5), (6, 5)], total 3 pairs.

Input : test_list = [(5, 6), (1, 3), (6, 5), (9, 1), (6, 5), (2, 1)]
Output : 2
Explanation : (5, 6) -> [(6, 5), (6, 5)], total 2 pairs.

Method : Using loop

In this we check for each element if we have any other element which is bidirectional, Once the pair is found, counter is incremented.

Output

```The original list is : [(5, 6), (1, 2), (6, 5), (9, 1), (6, 5), (2, 1)]
Bidirectional pairs count : 3
