# Python | Tuple XOR operation

Sometimes, while working with records, we can have a problem in which we may need to perform mathematical bitwise XOR operation across tuples. This problem can occur in day-day programming. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Method #1 : Using `zip()` + generator expression
The combination of above functions can be used to perform this task. In this, we perform the task of XOR using generator expression and mapping index of each tuple is done by zip().

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Tuple XOR operation ` `# using zip() + generator expression  ` ` `  `# initialize tuples  ` `test_tup1 ``=` `(``10``, ``4``, ``6``, ``9``)  ` `test_tup2 ``=` `(``5``, ``2``, ``3``, ``3``)  ` ` `  `# printing original tuples  ` `print``(``"The original tuple 1 : "` `+` `str``(test_tup1))  ` `print``(``"The original tuple 2 : "` `+` `str``(test_tup2))  ` ` `  `# Tuple XOR operation ` `# using zip() + generator expression  ` `res ``=` `tuple``(ele1 ^ ele2 ``for` `ele1, ele2 ``in` `zip``(test_tup1, test_tup2))  ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"The XOR tuple : "` `+` `str``(res))  `

Output :

```The original tuple 1 : (10, 4, 6, 9)
The original tuple 2 : (5, 2, 3, 3)
The XOR tuple : (15, 6, 5, 10)
```

Method #2 : Using `map() + xor`
The combination of above functionalities can also perform this task. In this, we perform the task of extending logic of XOR using xor and mapping is done by map().

 `# Python3 code to demonstrate working of  ` `# Tuple XOR operation  ` `# using map() + xor ` `from` `operator ``import` `xor ` ` `  `# initialize tuples  ` `test_tup1 ``=` `(``10``, ``4``, ``6``, ``9``)  ` `test_tup2 ``=` `(``5``, ``2``, ``3``, ``3``)  ` ` `  `# printing original tuples  ` `print``(``"The original tuple 1 : "` `+` `str``(test_tup1))  ` `print``(``"The original tuple 2 : "` `+` `str``(test_tup2))  ` ` `  `# Tuple XOR operation  ` `# using map() + xor ` `res ``=` `tuple``(``map``(xor, test_tup1, test_tup2))  ` ` `  `# printing result  ` `print``(``"The XOR tuple : "` `+` `str``(res)) `

Output :

```The original tuple 1 : (10, 4, 6, 9)
The original tuple 2 : (5, 2, 3, 3)
The XOR tuple : (15, 6, 5, 10)
```
