Tuple multiplication in Python

PythonServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

When it is required to perform tuple multiplication, the 'zip' method and the generator expression can be used.

The zip method takes iterables, aggregates them into a tuple, and returns it as the result.

Generator is a simple way of creating iterators. It automatically implements a class with '__iter__()' and '__next__()' methods and keeps track of the internal states, as well as raises 'StopIteration' exception when no values are present that could be returned.

Below is a demonstration of the same −


Live Demo

my_tuple_1 = (23, 45, 12, 56, 78)
my_tuple_2 = (89, 41, 76, 0, 11)

print("The first tuple is : ")
print("The second tuple is : ")

my_result = tuple(elem_1 * elem_2 for elem_1, elem_2 in zip(my_tuple_1, my_tuple_2))

print("The multiplied tuple is : ")


The first tuple is :
(23, 45, 12, 56, 78)
The second tuple is :
(89, 41, 76, 0, 11)
The multiplied tuple is :
(2047, 1845, 912, 0, 858)


  • Two tuples are defined, and are displayed on the console.
  • They are zipped, and iterated through
  • Every element from first tuple is multiple with the corresponding element in the second tuple.
  • It is converted to a tuple.
  • This operation is assigned to a value.
  • It is displayed as output on the console.
