Python program to Increment Numeric Strings by K

  • Last Updated : 11 Dec, 2020

Given the Strings list, write a Python program to increment strings that are numeric by K.

Examples:

Input : test_list = [“gfg”, “234”, “is”, “98”, “123”, “best”, “4”], K = 6 
Output : [‘gfg’, ‘240’, ‘is’, ‘104’, ‘129’, ‘best’, ’10’] 
Explanation : 234, 98 and 4 are incremented by 6 in result.

Input : test_list = [“gfg”, “234”, “is”, “98”, “123”, “best”, “4”], K = 4 
Output : [‘gfg’, ‘238’, ‘is’, ‘102’, ‘129’, ‘best’, ‘8’] 
Explanation : 234, 98 and 4 are incremented by 4 in result. 

Method #1 : Using str() + int() + loop + isdigit()

In this, we perform task of interconversion of elements using str() + int(), and check for number using isdigit(), iteration is done using loop.

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Increment Numeric Strings by K
# Using str() + int() + loop + isdigit()
  
# initializing Matrix
test_list = ["gfg", "234", "is", "98", "123", "best", "4"]
  
# printing original list
print("The original list is : " + str(test_list))
  
# initializing K
K = 6
  
res = []
for ele in test_list:
  
    # incrementing on testing for digit.
    if ele.isdigit():
        res.append(str(int(ele) + K))
    else:
        res.append(ele)
  
# printing result
print("Incremented Numeric Strings : " + str(res))

Output:

The original list is : [‘gfg’, ‘234’, ‘is’, ’98’, ‘123’, ‘best’, ‘4’]
Incremented Numeric Strings : [‘gfg’, ‘240’, ‘is’, ‘104’, ‘129’, ‘best’, ’10’]

Method #2 : Using list comprehension + isdigit()

This is one of the ways in which this task can be performed. Similar to above, just one line alternative to compact the solution using list comprehension.

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Increment Numeric Strings by K
# Using list comprehension + isdigit()
  
# initializing Matrix
test_list = ["gfg", "234", "is", "98", "123", "best", "4"]
  
# printing original list
print("The original list is : " + str(test_list))
  
# initializing K
K = 6
  
# increment Numeric digits.
res = [str(int(ele) + K) if ele.isdigit() else ele for ele in test_list]
  
# printing result
print("Incremented Numeric Strings : " + str(res))

Output:

The original list is : [‘gfg’, ‘234’, ‘is’, ’98’, ‘123’, ‘best’, ‘4’]
Incremented Numeric Strings : [‘gfg’, ‘240’, ‘is’, ‘104’, ‘129’, ‘best’, ’10’]
