Python program to count positive and negative numbers in a list

Given a list of numbers, write a Python program to count positive and negative numbers in a List.

Example:

Input: list1 = [2, -7, 5, -64, -14]
Output: pos = 2, neg = 3

Input: list2 = [-12, 14, 95, 3]
Output: pos = 3, neg = 1

Example #1: Count positive and negative numbers from given list using for loop



Iterate each element in the list using for loop and check if num >= 0, the condition to check positive numbers. If the condition satisfies, then increase pos_count else increase neg_count.

# Python program to count positive and negative numbers in a List
  
# list of numbers
list1 = [10, -21, 4, -45, 66, -93, 1]
  
pos_count, neg_count = 0, 0
  
# iterating each number in list
for num in list1:
      
    # checking condition
    if num >= 0:
        pos_count += 1
  
    else:
        neg_count += 1
          
print("Positive numbers in the list: ", pos_count)
print("Negative numbers in the list: ", neg_count)

Output:

Positive numbers in the list:  4
Negative numbers in the list:  3

# list of numbers
list1 = [-10, -21, -4, -45, -66, 93, 11]
  
pos_count, neg_count = 0, 0
num = 0
  
# using while loop     
while(num < len(list1)):
      
    # checking condition
    if list1[num] >= 0:
        pos_count += 1
    else:
        neg_count += 1
      
    # increment num 
    num += 1
      
print("Positive numbers in the list: ", pos_count)
print("Negative numbers in the list: ", neg_count)

Output:

Positive numbers in the list:  2
Negative numbers in the list:  5

list1 = [10, -21, -4, 45, 66, 93, -11]
  
neg_count = len(list(filter(lambda x: (x < 0), list1)))
  
# we can also do len(list1) - neg_count
pos_count = len(list(filter(lambda x: (x >= 0), list1)))
  
print("Positive numbers in the list: ", pos_count)
print("Negative numbers in the list: ", neg_count)

Output:

Positive numbers in the list:  4
Negative numbers in the list:  3
