Python - Change the signs of elements of tuples in a list

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When it is required to change the signs of the elements in a list of tuple, a simple iteration, the ‘abs’ method and the ‘append’ method can be used.

Example

Below is a demonstration of the same

my_list = [(51, -11), (-24, -24), (11, 42), (-12, 45), (-45, 26), (-97, -4)]

print("The list is :")
print(my_list)
my_result = []
for sub in my_list:
   my_result.append((abs(sub[0]), -abs(sub[1])))

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

Output

The list is :
[(51, -11), (-24, -24), (11, 42), (-12, 45), (-45, 26), (-97, -4)]
The result is :
[(51, -11), (24, -24), (11, -42), (12, -45), (45, -26), (97, -4)]

Explanation

  • A list of tuple is defined and is displayed on the console.

  • An empty list is defined.

  • The original list is iterated over.

  • The ‘abs’ method is used to get the absolute value of the negative elements of the list.

  • This result is appended to the empty list.

  • This is displayed as output on the console.
