Python Set Operations – Python Tutorial

Python Set Operations : In this tutorial, we will learn about different python set operations, some of them are as follows :

  1. Set Contains
  2. Set Not Contains
  3. Set Length
  4. Set Deletion
  5. Set Min & Max

Python Set Operations

Set Contains

Operator in can be used to check, if a given element is present in the set or not. If a element is present in the set then return True otherwise return False.
[datacamp_exercise lang=”python” height=”50″ min-height=”50″ max-height=”100″]
[datacamp_sample_code]
# create set object and assign it to variable s
s = {1,2,3,4,5}

# example of contains
contains = 1 in s
print(contains)

contains = 6 in s
print(contains)

Set Not Contains

Operator not in can be used to check, if a given element is present in the set or not. If a element is present in the set then return False otherwise return True.
[datacamp_exercise lang=”python” height=”50″ min-height=”50″ max-height=”100″]
[datacamp_sample_code]
# create set object and assign it to variable s
s = {1,2,3,4,5}

# example of not contains
not_contain = 1 not in s
print(not_contain)

not_contain = 6 not in s
print(not_contain)

Set Length

Python’s len() function can be used to get the length of a set.

Syntax: len(< Set Object >)

For example:
[datacamp_exercise lang=”python” height=”50″ min-height=”50″ max-height=”50″]
[datacamp_pre_exercise_code]

[/datacamp_pre_exercise_code]
[datacamp_sample_code]
# create set object and assign it to variable s
s = {1,2,3,4,5,5,6,6}

# call len() method to get length of the set s
length = len(s)

# print the value of variable length
print(length)
[/datacamp_sample_code]

Set Deletion

We can use del statement to delete set object entirely. For example:
[datacamp_exercise lang=”python” height=”50″ min-height=”50″ max-height=”100″]
[datacamp_sample_code]
# create set object and assign it to variable s
s = {‘Jan’,’Feb’,’Mar’}

# print set s
print(s)

# delete set s
del s

# print set s
print(s)

Set Min & Max

Python’s min() and max()  function can be used to get minimum and maximum element in the set.

Syntax: min(< Set Object >)

               max(< Set Object >)

For example:
[datacamp_exercise lang=”python” height=”310″ min-height=”50″ max-height=”50″]
[datacamp_pre_exercise_code]

[/datacamp_pre_exercise_code]
[datacamp_sample_code]
# create set object and assign it to variable s
s = {1,2,3,4,5}

# call min() method to get minimum element in the set s
minimum = min(s)

# print the value of variable minimum
print(minimum)

# call max() method to get maximum element in the ser s
maximum = max(s)

# print the value of variable maximum
print(maximum)
