Python Program to print all Possible Combinations from the three Digits
  • Last Updated : 29 Aug, 2020

Given 3 digits a, b, and c. The task is to find all the possible combinations from these digits.

Examples:

Input: [1, 2, 3]
Output:
1 2 3
1 3 2
2 1 3
2 3 1
3 1 2
3 2 1

Input: [0, 9, 5]
Output:
0 9 5
0 5 9
9 0 5
9 5 0
5 0 9
5 9 0

Method 1: Brute force or Naive approach

The naive approach is to run 3 loops from 0 to 3 and print all the numbers from the list if the indexes are not equal to each other.

Example:



Python3




# Python program to print all
# the possible combinations
  
def comb(L):
      
    for i in range(3):
        for j in range(3):
            for k in range(3):
                  
                # check if the indexes are not
                # same
                if (i!=j and j!=k and i!=k):
                    print(L[i], L[j], L[k])
                      
# Driver Code
comb([1, 2, 3])

Output:

1 2 3
1 3 2
2 1 3
2 3 1
3 1 2
3 2 1

Method 2: Using itertools.permutations()

This method takes a list as an input and returns an object list of tuples that contain all permutation in a list form.

Example:

Python3




# Python program to print all
# the possible combinations
  
from itertools import permutations
  
# Get all combination of [1, 2, 3]
# of length 3
comb = permutations([1, 2, 3], 3)
  
for i in comb:
    print(i)

Output:

(1, 2, 3)
(1, 3, 2)
(2, 1, 3)
(2, 3, 1)
(3, 1, 2)
(3, 2, 1)
