Find Dissimilar Elements in Tuples in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When it is required to find dissimilar elements in tuples, the 'set' operator and the '^' operator can be used.

Python comes with a datatype known as 'set'. This 'set' contains elements that are unique only.

The set is useful in performing operations such as intersection, difference, union and symmetric difference.

The '^' operator is a bitwise operator that performs the 'XOR' operation. It sets every bit to 1 if only one of the two bits is 1.

Below is a demonstration of the same −

Example

Live Demo

my_tuple_1 = ((7, 8), (3, 4), (3, 2))
my_tuple_2 = ((9, 6), (8, 2), (1, 4))

print ("The first tuple is : " )
print(my_tuple_1)
print ("The second tuple is : " )
print(my_tuple_2)

my_result = tuple(set(my_tuple_1) ^ set(my_tuple_2))

print("The dissimilar elements in the tuples are : ")
print(my_result)

Output

The first tuple is :
((7, 8), (3, 4), (3, 2))
The second tuple is :
((9, 6), (8, 2), (1, 4))
The dissimilar elements in the tuples are :
((3, 4), (9, 6), (1, 4), (8, 2), (3, 2), (7, 8))

Explanation

  • Two nested tuples/tuple of tuples are defined and are displayed on the console.
  • The '^' operator is used to find the elements that are not similar to one other.
  • This result is assigned to a variable.
  • It is displayed as output on the console.
