Python Question

I have to create a three new lists of items using two different lists.

`list_one = ['one', 'two','three', 'four','five']`

list_two = ['blue', 'green', 'white']

So,

`len(list_one) != len(list_two)`

Now I should create an algorithm(a cycle) which can do this:

`[oneblue, twoblue, threeblue, fourblue, fiveblue]`

I undestand that I should create three cycles but I don't know how.

I've tried to make a function like this but it doesn't works.

`def mix():`

i = 0

for i in range(len(list_one)):

new_list = list_one[i]+list_two[0]

i = i+1

return new_list

What am I doing wrong?

Answer

I think you might be looking for itertools.product:

```
>>> [b + a for a,b in itertools.product(list_two, list_one)]
['oneblue',
'twoblue',
'threeblue',
'fourblue',
'fiveblue',
'onegreen',
'twogreen',
'threegreen',
'fourgreen',
'fivegreen',
'onewhite',
'twowhite',
'threewhite',
'fourwhite',
'fivewhite']
```
