# Python | Sort a list of percentage

Given a list of percentage, write a Python program to sort the given list in ascending order.

Let’s see different ways to do the task.

Code #1: Chops ‘%’ in string and convert it into float.

 `# Python code to sort list of percentage  ` ` `  `# List initialization ` `Input` `=``[``'2.5 %'``, ``'6.4 %'``, ``'91.6 %'``, ``'11.5 %'``] ` ` `  `# removing % and converting to float ` `# then apply sort function ` `Input``.sort(key ``=` `lambda` `x: ``float``(x[:``-``1``])) ` ` `  `# printing output ` `print``(``Input``) `

Output:

```['2.5 %', '6.4 %', '11.5 %', '91.6 %']
```

Code #2:

 `# Python code to sort list of percentage  ` ` `  `# List initialization ` `Input` `=``[``'2.5 %'``, ``'6.4 %'``, ``'91.6 %'``, ``'11.5 %'``] ` ` `  `# Temporary list initialization ` `temp ``=` `[] ` ` `  `# removing % sign ` `for` `key ``in` `Input``: ` `    ``temp.append((key[:``-``1``])) ` ` `  `# sorting list of float ` `temp ``=` `sorted``(temp, key ``=` `float``) ` ` `  `# Output list initialization ` `output ``=` `[] ` ` `  `# Adding percentage sign ` `for` `key ``in` `temp: ` `    ``output.append(key ``+` `'%'``) ` ` `  `# printing output ` `print``(output) `

Output:

```['2.5 %', '6.4 %', '11.5 %', '91.6 %']
```
