# Python – Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple

• Last Updated : 17 Aug, 2022

Sometimes, while working with Python tuples, we can have a problem in which we need to perform the removal of the first occurrence of an element in tuple. This type of problem can have applications in many domains such as school programming. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

```Input : test_tuple = (5, 6, 5, 4, 7, 8, 4), K = 5
Output : (6, 5, 4, 7, 8, 4) ```
```Input : test_tuple = (5, 6, 8, 4, 7, 8, 4), K = 8
Output : (5, 6, 4, 7, 8, 4)```

Method #1: Using index() + loop + list slicing The combination of the above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of extracting the first occurrence of K using index() and list slicing is used to reorder the tuple after element removal.

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple``# Using index() + loop + list slicing` `# initializing tuples``test_tuple ``=` `(``5``, ``6``, ``4``, ``4``, ``7``, ``8``, ``4``)` `# printing original tuple``print``("The original ``tuple` `: " ``+` `str``(test_tuple))` `# initializing K``K ``=` `4` `# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple``# Using index() + loop + list slicing``try``:``    ``idx ``=` `test_tuple.index(K)``    ``res ``=` `test_tuple[:idx] ``+` `test_tuple[idx ``+` `1``:]``except` `ValueError: ``    ``res ``=` `test_tuple` `# printing result``print``("``Tuple` `after element removal : " ``+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original tuple : (5, 6, 4, 4, 7, 8, 4)
Tuple after element removal : (5, 6, 4, 7, 8, 4)```

Method #2 : Using enumerate() + generator expression This is one of the ways in which this task can be performed. This offers one liner way to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of checking for element and index using enumerate().

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple``# Using enumerate() + generator expression` `# initializing tuples``test_tuple ``=` `(``5``, ``6``, ``4``, ``4``, ``7``, ``8``, ``4``)` `# printing original tuple``print``("The original ``tuple` `: " ``+` `str``(test_tuple))` `# initializing K``K ``=` `4` `# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple``# Using enumerate() + generator expression``res ``=` `tuple``(ele ``for` `idx, ele ``in` `enumerate``(test_tuple) ``if` `idx !``=` `test_tuple.index(K))` `# printing result``print``("``Tuple` `after element removal : " ``+` `str``(res))`

Output :

```The original tuple : (5, 6, 4, 4, 7, 8, 4)
Tuple after element removal : (5, 6, 4, 7, 8, 4)```

Method #3 : Using list(),map(),tuple(),join(),replace() methods

## Python3

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of``# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple` `# initializing tuples``test_tuple ``=` `(``5``, ``6``, ``4``, ``4``, ``7``, ``8``, ``4``)` `# printing original tuple``print``(``"The original tuple : "` `+` `str``(test_tuple))` `# initializing K``K ``=` `4` `# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple``x ``=` `list``(``map``(``str``, test_tuple))``p ``=` `"".join(x)``p ``=` `p.replace(``str``(K), "", ``1``)``y ``=` `list``(``map``(``int``, p))``res ``=` `tuple``(y)` `# printing result``print``(``"Tuple after element removal : "` `+` `str``(res))`

Output

```The original tuple : (5, 6, 4, 4, 7, 8, 4)
Tuple after element removal : (5, 6, 4, 7, 8, 4)
```
