# Python | Swap tuple elements in list of tuples

While doing competitive programming, one can come across a question in which one requires to work with 2D plane and work with coordinates. One such subproblem can be swapping x, y coordinate elements. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this problem can be solved using tuple element swapping.

Method #1 : Using list comprehension
This is just a brute method to perform the longer method of loop for swapping the elements. In this a new list of tuple is created rather than an inplace swap.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Swap tuple elements in list of tuples ` `# Using list comprehension ` ` `  `# initializing list ` `test_list ``=` `[(``3``, ``4``), (``6``, ``5``), (``7``, ``8``)] ` ` `  `# printing original list ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` ` `  `# Swap tuple elements in list of tuples ` `# Using list comprehension ` `res ``=` `[(sub[``1``], sub[``0``]) ``for` `sub ``in` `test_list] ` `         `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"The swapped tuple list is : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [(3, 4), (6, 5), (7, 8)]
The swapped tuple list is : [(4, 3), (5, 6), (8, 7)]
```

Method #2 : Using `map()` + lambda
Yet another way to perform this task is using `map` and lambda. This is a bit slower in execution but a more compact way to perform this task.

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Swap tuple elements in list of tuples ` `# Using map() + lambda ` ` `  `# initializing list ` `test_list ``=` `[(``3``, ``4``), (``6``, ``5``), (``7``, ``8``)] ` ` `  `# printing original list ` `print``(``"The original list is : "` `+` `str``(test_list)) ` ` `  `# Swap tuple elements in list of tuples ` `# Using map() + lambda ` `res ``=` `list``(``map``(``lambda` `sub: (sub[``1``], sub[``0``]), test_list)) ` `         `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"The swapped tuple list is : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original list is : [(3, 4), (6, 5), (7, 8)]
The swapped tuple list is : [(4, 3), (5, 6), (8, 7)]
```
