# Python â€“ Extend consecutive tuples

When it is required to extend consecutive tuples, a simple iteration is used.

## Example

Below is a demonstration of the same −

my_list = [(13, 526, 73), (23, 67, 0, 72, 24, 13), (94, 42), (11, 62, 23, 12), (93, ), (83, 61)]

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

my_list.sort(reverse=True)
print("The list after sorting in reverse is :")
print(my_list)

my_result = []
for index in range(len(my_list) - 1):
my_result.append(my_list[index] + my_list[index + 1])

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

## Output

The list is :
[(13, 526, 73), (23, 67, 0, 72, 24, 13), (94, 42), (11, 62, 23, 12), (93,), (83, 61)]
The list after sorting in reverse is :
[(94, 42), (93,), (83, 61), (23, 67, 0, 72, 24, 13), (13, 526, 73), (11, 62, 23, 12)]
The result is :
[(94, 42, 93), (93, 83, 61), (83, 61, 23, 67, 0, 72, 24, 13), (23, 67, 0, 72, 24, 13, 13, 526, 73), (13,
526, 73, 11, 62, 23, 12)]

## Explanation

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

• It is sorted in reverse using ‘sorted’ method and displayed on the console.

• An empty list is created.

• The list is iterated over, consecutive elements are added and appended to the empty list.

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