# Python – Storing Elements Greater than K as Dictionary

Sometimes, while working with python lists, we can have a problem in which we need to extract elements greater than K. But sometimes, we don’t require to store duplicacy and hence store by key value pair in dictionary. To track of number position of occurrence in dictionary.

Method #1 : Using loop
This is brute force way in which this task can be performed. In this, we store elements in form of dictionary by checking for elements greater than K.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate  ` `# Storing Elements Greater than K as Dictionary ` `# using loop ` ` `  `# Initializing list ` `test_list ``=` `[``12``, ``44``, ``56``, ``34``, ``67``, ``98``, ``34``] ` ` `  `# printing original list ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` ` `  `# Initializing K  ` `K ``=` `50` ` `  `# Storing Elements Greater than K as Dictionary ` `# using loop ` `res ``=` `dict``() ` `count ``=` `1` `for` `ele ``in` `test_list: ` `    ``if` `ele > K: ` `        ``res[count] ``=` `ele ` `        ``count ``=` `count ``+` `1` `         `  `# printing result  ` `print` `(``"The dictionary after storing elements : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [12, 44, 56, 34, 67, 98, 34]
The dictionary after storing elements : {1: 56, 2: 67, 3: 98}
```

Method #2 : Using dictionary comprehension
This is yet another way in which this task can be performed. In this, we just perform similar task in a shorted construct using dictionary comprehension and enumerate() for indexing.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate  ` `# Storing Elements Greater than K as Dictionary ` `# using dictionary comprehension ` ` `  `# Initializing list ` `test_list ``=` `[``12``, ``44``, ``56``, ``34``, ``67``, ``98``, ``34``] ` ` `  `# printing original list ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` ` `  `# Initializing K  ` `K ``=` `50` ` `  `# Storing Elements Greater than K as Dictionary ` `# using dictionary comprehension ` `res ``=` `{idx: ele ``for` `idx, ele ``in` `enumerate``(test_list) ``if` `ele >``=` `K} ` `         `  `# printing result  ` `print` `(``"The dictionary after storing elements : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [12, 44, 56, 34, 67, 98, 34]
The dictionary after storing elements : {2: 56, 4: 67, 5: 98}
```
