Given Tuple list, compute bidirectional tuples.

Input : test_list = [(5, 6), (1, 2), (6, 5), (9, 1), (6, 5), (2, 1)] 
Output : 3 
Explanation : (1, 2), (2, 1); (5, 6) -> [(6, 5), (6, 5)], total 3 pairs.

Input : test_list = [(5, 6), (1, 3), (6, 5), (9, 1), (6, 5), (2, 1)] 
Output : 2 
Explanation : (5, 6) -> [(6, 5), (6, 5)], total 2 pairs. 
 

Method : Using loop

In this we check for each element if we have any other element which is bidirectional, Once the pair is found, counter is incremented.

Python3




# Python3 code to demonstrate working of
# Count Bidirectional Tuple Pairs
# Using loop
  
# initializing list
test_list = [(5, 6), (1, 2), (6, 5), (9, 1), (6, 5), (2, 1)]
  
# printing original list
print("The original list is : " + str(test_list))
  
res = 0
for idx in range(0, len(test_list)):
    for iidx in range(idx + 1, len(test_list)):
  
        # checking bidirection
        if test_list[iidx][0] == test_list[idx][1] and test_list[idx][1] == test_list[iidx][0]:
            res += 1
  
# printing result
print("Bidirectional pairs count : " + str(res))


Output:

The original list is : [(5, 6), (1, 2), (6, 5), (9, 1), (6, 5), (2, 1)]
Bidirectional pairs count : 3
