# Basic functions to process Tuple

This blog describes some of the functions available in Python to process tuple.

Below is the list of function to process tuple

len()
min()
max()
count()
index()
sorted()

len() function

Returns number of elements in a tuple

Example

``````tup = (1,2,3,4,5,6)
print('Number of elements:',len(tup))``````

Output

``Number of elements: 6``

min() function

Returns smallest element from a tuple

Example

``````tup = (1,2,3,4,5,6)
print('Smallest element:',min(tup))``````

Output

``1``

max() function

Returns the biggest element from a tuple

Example

``````tup = (1,2,3,4,5,6)
print('Biggest element:',max(tup))``````

Output

``````Biggest element: 6
``````

count() function

Returns number of times x element is found in a tuple

Example

``````tup = (1,2,3,2,2,5,6)
print('Number of time element appeared in a tuple:',tup.count(2))``````

Output

``````Number of time element appeared in a tuple: 3
``````

index() function

Returns the first occurrence of the x element from a tuple. Provides the first index position of x element

Example

``````tup = (1,4,5,2,3,2,2,5,6)
print('First occurrence',tup.index(2))``````

Output

``````First occurrence 3
``````

sorted() function

Sort the elements into ascending order.

Example

``````tup = (59,69,19,29,49,39)
print(sorted(tup))
``````

Output

``[19, 29, 39, 49, 59, 69]``

Sorting elements into descending order with reverse set to true

``````tup = (59,69,19,29,49,39)
print(sorted(tup, reverse=True))``````

Output

``[69, 59, 49, 39, 29, 19]``
