When it is required to find the maximum difference across the lists, the ‘abs’ and the ‘max’ methods are used.
Below is a demonstration of the same
my_list_1 = [7, 9, 1, 2, 7] my_list_2 = [6, 3, 1, 2, 1] print("The first list is :") print(my_list_1) print("The second list is :") print(my_list_2) my_result = max(abs(my_list_2[index] - my_list_1[index]) for index in range(0, len(my_list_1) - 1)) print("The maximum difference among the lists is :") print(my_result)
The first list is : [7, 9, 1, 2, 7] The second list is : [6, 3, 1, 2, 1] The maximum difference among the lists is : 6
Two lists are defined and are displayed on the console.
The difference between elements of the two lists are taken by iterating through the length of the elements.
The absolute difference between the values is taken, and then the maximum of these differences is taken.
This is stored in a variable.
This is displayed as output on the console.
