Python – Average digits count in a List



When it is required to count average digits in a list, a simple iteration, the ‘str’ method and the ‘/’ operator is used.

Below is a demonstration of the same −

Example

 Live Demo

my_list = [324, 5345, 243, 746, 432, 463, 946787]

print("The list is :")
print(my_list)

sum_digits = 0

for ele in my_list:
   sum_digits += len(str(ele))
   
my_result = sum_digits / len(my_list)

print("The result is :")
print(my_result)

Output

The list is :
[324, 5345, 243, 746, 432, 463, 946787]
The result is :
3.5714285714285716

Explanation

  • A list is defined and displayed on the console.

  • A variable is initialized to 0.

  • The list is iterated over, and the sum of the digits is calculated by first converting the element to a list and determining its length using ‘len’ method.

  • The average of these digits is calculated.

  • This result is assigned to a variable.

  • This is the output that is displayed on the console.
