When it is required to find the consecutive division in a list, a method is defined that iterates over the elements of the list and uses the ‘/’ operator to determine the result.
Below is a demonstration of the same −
def consec_division(my_list): my_result = my_list for idx in range(1, len(my_list)): my_result /= my_list[idx] return my_result my_list = [2200, 500, 100, 50, 20, 5] print("The list is :") print(my_list) my_result = consec_division(my_list) print("The result is :") print(my_result)
The list is : [2200, 500, 100, 50, 20, 5] The result is : 8.8e-06
A method named ‘consec_division’ is defined that takes a list as a parameter.
It assigns the zeroth index to a variable.
The list is iterated over, and the ‘/’ operator is used to divide every element by the first element.
This is returned as result.
Outside the method, a list is defined and is displayed on the console.
The method is called by passing the list.
This is assigned to a variable.
It is displayed as output on the console.
