# How can I subtract tuple of tuples from a tuple in Python?

PythonProgramming

The direct way to subtract tuple of tuples from a tuple in Python is to use loops directly. For example, if

you have a tuple of tuples

## Example

((0, 1, 2), (3, 4, 5), (6, 7, 8), (9, 10, 11), (12, 13, 14))

and want to subtract (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) from each of the inner tuples, you can do it as follows

my_tuple = ((0, 1, 2), (3, 4, 5), (6, 7, 8), (9, 10, 11), (12, 13, 14))
sub = (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
tuple(tuple(x - sub[i] for x in my_tuple[i]) for i in range(len(my_tuple)))

## Output

This will give the output

((-1, 0, 1), (1, 2, 3), (3, 4, 5), (5, 6, 7), (7, 8, 9))
