Tuples Methods In Python
In this lesson, we’ll discuss Python tuples methods with examples in order to achieve our instructional goals.
Python Tuples Methods
There are several built-in Python tuple methods that you can use when dealing with Python tuples.
|count()||Tuple that returns the number of times a given value appears.|
|index()||Returns the position of the value when the tuple is searched for a given value.|
Python Tuple index() Method
Using index(), you can find the first instance of the given value.
Exceptions are thrown by the index() method if the value cannot be found.
You can find the position of the first occurrence of the value “Los Angeles Rams” by searching for it:
By searching for it, you can find the position of the first appearance of “Arizona Cardinals” and “Kansas City Chiefs”:
Tip: See our chapter section on tuple index() method for more information.
Python Tuple count() Method
A tuple’s count() method returns the number of times a specified value appears.
Find out how many times the value “Dallas Cowboys” occurs in the tuple:
Find out how many times the values “Dallas Cowboys” and “Houston Texans” occur in the tuple and also find the total duplicates in the two tuples:

Python Tuple Methods Importance
Here are some important tuple methods:
- This method returns the number of occurrences of a specific element within a tuple. It allows you to quickly determine how many times a particular value appears in the tuple.
index()method returns the index of the first occurrence of a specified element in the tuple. It helps you find the position of a value within the tuple.
- Although not a specific tuple method,
len()is a built-in Python function that can be used to determine the length of a tuple. It returns the number of elements in the tuple.
tuple()method is used to create a new tuple from an iterable object, such as a list, string, or another tuple. It allows you to convert other data types to tuples.
- While not a method itself, tuples support iteration using loops. You can use a
forloop to iterate over the elements of a tuple, accessing each element for processing.
