Tuple Division in Python

• Last Updated : 26 Nov, 2019

Sometimes, while working with records, we can have a problem in which we may need to perform mathematical division 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 division using generator expression and mapping index of each tuple is done by zip().

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

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

 # Python3 code to demonstrate working of # Tuple division # using map() + floordiv from operator import floordiv  # 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 division# using map() + floordiv res = tuple(map(floordiv, test_tup1, test_tup2))   # printing result print("The divided tuple : " + str(res))
Output :
The original tuple 1 : (10, 4, 6, 9)
The original tuple 2 : (5, 2, 3, 3)
The divided tuple : (2, 2, 2, 3)
