# Python – Storing Elements Greater than K as Dictionary

• Last Updated : 06 Mar, 2020

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.

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.

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