How to Convert a List to a Tuple in Python

1. Introduction

Converting a list to a tuple in Python involves transforming a list, defined by square brackets [], into a tuple, which is defined by parentheses (). This can be done using the built-in tuple() function, which takes an iterable as an argument and returns a new tuple object containing the elements of that iterable.

2. Program Steps

1. Create a list that you wish to convert into a tuple.

2. Use the tuple() function to convert the list into a tuple.

3. Print the resulting tuple to confirm the conversion.

3. Code Program

# Step 1: Create a list
my_list = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]

# Step 2: Convert the list to a tuple using the tuple() function
my_tuple = tuple(my_list)

# Step 3: Print the resulting tuple
print("Converted tuple:", my_tuple)


Converted tuple: (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)


1. my_list is defined with elements [1, 2, 3, 4, 5].

2. The tuple() function is used to convert my_list into a tuple, resulting in my_tuple.

3. The print function displays my_tuple, confirming that it contains the same elements as my_list but is of type tuple, which is denoted by the parentheses ().
