Python: How to pair the first two numerical items in a list and determine whether item a or item b are greater a certain number, and create a loop so it does this for the entire list?
I have tried creating a nested list of the pairs, but I cannot convert these into floats in order for to determine whether either item a or b is greater than a certain numerical value.
List = [ 4, 7, 3 , 6, 9, 6)
I need to split the list into pairs and then see if either numbers in the pair is greater or equal to 5 and then print yes or no.
you can use the by-step function of the slicing tool:
Example_List = [ 4, 7, 3 , 6, 9, 6] for a,b in zip(Example_List[::2],Example_List[1::2]): if max(a,b)>5: print("yes") else: print("no")
Example_List[::2] takes one element out of two starting from the first one and
Example_List[1::2] takes one element out of two starting from the second one
