# Python â€“ Dual Tuple Alternate summation

When it is required to perform dual tuple alternate summation, a simple iteration and the modulus operator are used.

Below is a demonstration of the same −

## Example

Live Demo

my_list = [(24, 11), (45, 66), (53, 52), (77, 51), (31, 10)]

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

my_result = 0
for index in range(len(my_list)):

if index % 2 == 0:
my_result += my_list[index][0]
else:
my_result += my_list[index][1]

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

## Output

The list is :
[(24, 11), (45, 66), (53, 52), (77, 51), (31, 10)]
The result is :
225

## Explanation

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

• A variable is initialized to 0.

• A list comprehension is used to iterate over the elements of the list, and modulus operator is used to check if remainder of every element divided with 2 is equal to 0.

• If yes, the element in 0th index is added to the variable.

• Otherwise, the element in first index is added to the variable.

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