In this chapter let us look at how to store various items within a tuple. A tuple is just like a list that can be used to store multiple items and then allows us to retrieve those items through its index.
Here is how to declare a tuple, either through its constructor or the (), and how to retrieve a particular item within that tuple.
atuple = tuple((1,2,3)) atuple1 = (1,2,3) atuple # 1, the index of a tuple started at index 0
In the below example let us create the above tuple again and use the for loop, to sum up, all those numbers within that tuple.
atuple = tuple((1,2,3)) sum = 0 for num in atuple: sum += num print(sum) # 6
Just like a list, those elements within the tuple consists of various types:
atuple = ("hi", True, 1)
Tuple is one of the Array data type used in Python and its function is basically almost the same as a list!
