Python – Sort Tuples by Total digits

• Last Updated : 11 Oct, 2020

Given a Tuple List, perform sort on basis of total digits in tuple.

Examples:

Input : test_list = [(3, 4, 6, 723), (1, 2), (134, 234, 34)]
Output : [(1, 2), (3, 4, 6, 723), (134, 234, 34)]
Explanation : 2 < 6 < 8, sorted by increasing total digits.

Input : test_list = [(1, 2), (134, 234, 34)]
Output : [(1, 2), (134, 234, 34)]
Explanation : 2 < 8, sorted by increasing total digits.

Method #1: Using sort() + len() + sum()

In this, we get all sum of all lengths of each element in the tuple by string conversion and len(). Then sort() is used with key to solve this problem.

Python3

 # Python3 code to demonstrate working of # Sort Tuples by Total digits# Using sort() + len() + sum()  def count_digs(tup):          # gets total digits in tuples    return sum([len(str(ele)) for ele in tup ])  # initializing listtest_list = [(3, 4, 6, 723), (1, 2), (12345,), (134, 234, 34)]  # printing original listprint("The original list is : " + str(test_list))  # performing sort test_list.sort(key = count_digs)  # printing result print("Sorted tuples : " + str(test_list))
Output
The original list is : [(3, 4, 6, 723), (1, 2), (12345,), (134, 234, 34)]
Sorted tuples : [(1, 2), (12345,), (3, 4, 6, 723), (134, 234, 34)]

Method #2 : Using sorted() + lambda + sum() + len()

In this, we perform task of sorting using sorted(), and the lambda function performs the task of computation of total digits in tuples.

Python3

 # Python3 code to demonstrate working of # Sort Tuples by Total digits# Using sorted() + lambda + sum() + len()  # initializing listtest_list = [(3, 4, 6, 723), (1, 2), (12345,), (134, 234, 34)]  # printing original listprint("The original list is : " + str(test_list))  # performing sort, lambda function provides logicres = sorted(test_list, key = lambda tup : sum([len(str(ele)) for ele in tup ]))  # printing result print("Sorted tuples : " + str(res))
Output
The original list is : [(3, 4, 6, 723), (1, 2), (12345,), (134, 234, 34)]
Sorted tuples : [(1, 2), (12345,), (3, 4, 6, 723), (134, 234, 34)]
