Python Program to Add Corresponding Positioned Elements of 2 Linked Lists

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When it is required to add the corresponding elements of specific position in two linked lists, a method to add elements to the linked list, a method to print the elements of the linked list, and a method to add elements to corresponding positions of a linked list are defined. Two lists instances are created and the previously defined method is called on these linked list instances.

Below is a demonstration for the same −

Example

 Live Demo

class Node:
   def __init__(self, data):
      self.data = data
      self.next = None

class LinkedList_structure:
   def __init__(self):
      self.head = None
      self.last_node = None

   def add_vals(self, data):
      if self.last_node is None:
         self.head = Node(data)
         self.last_node = self.head
      else:
         self.last_node.next = Node(data)
         self.last_node = self.last_node.next

   def print_it(self):
      curr = self.head
      while curr is not None:
         print(curr.data)
         curr = curr.next

def add_linked_list(my_list_1, my_list_2):
   sum_list = LinkedList_structure()
   curr_1 = my_list_1.head
   curr_2 = my_list_2.head
   while (curr_1 and curr_2):
      sum_val = curr_1.data + curr_2.data
      sum_list.add_vals(sum_val)
      curr_1 = curr_1.next
      curr_2 = curr_2.next
   if curr_1 is None:
      while curr_2:
         sum_list.add_vals(curr_2.data)
         curr_2 = curr_2.next
   else:
      while curr_1:
         sum_list.add_vals(curr_1.data)
         curr_1 = curr_1.next
   return sum_list

my_list_1 = LinkedList_structure()
my_list_2 = LinkedList_structure()

my_list = input('Enter the elements of the first linked list : ').split()
for elem in my_list:
   my_list_1.add_vals(int(elem))

my_list = input('Enter the elements of the second linked list : ').split()
for elem in my_list:
   my_list_2.add_vals(int(elem))

sum_list = add_linked_list(my_list_1, my_list_2)

print('The sum of elements in the linked list is ')
sum_list.print_it()

Output

Enter the elements of the first linked list : 56 34 78 99 54 11
Enter the elements of the second linked list : 23 56 99 0 122 344
The sum of elements in the linked list is
79
90
177
99
176
355

Explanation

  • The ‘Node’ class is created.

  • Another ‘LinkedList_structure’ class with required attributes is created.

  • It has an ‘init’ function that is used to initialize the first element, i.e the ‘head’ to ‘None’.

  • A method named ‘add_vals’ is defined, that helps add a value to the stack.

  • Another method named ‘print_it’ is defined, that helps display the values of the linked list.

  • Another method named ‘add_linked_list’ is defined, that helps add the corresponding elements of the two linked list.

  • Two instances of the ‘LinkedList_structure’ are created.

  • Elements are added to both the linked lists.

  • The ‘add_linked_list’ method is called on these linked lists.

  • The output is displayed on the console.
