Python videos | Python Part 10 - Sets
Posted by Andy Brown on 18 October 2021
Sets in Python provide a beautifully elegant way to remove duplicates from a list and to compare the contents of two lists, as this tutorial hopefully will prove to you!
This video has the following accompanying files:
|Working with sets.py||Python code||Code for set operations|
|Eg 1 - remove duplicates.py||Python code||Removing duplicates from a shopping list|
|Shopping list.txt||Text file||The shopping list itself|
|Eg 2 - counting letters and words.py||Python code||Counting unique letters and words in quotation|
|Eg 3 - promotions and relegations.py||Python code||Comparing premier leagues for 2 seasons|
|PL 20-21.txt||Text file||Premier league end 2020-21|
|PL 21-22.txt||Text file||Premier league start 2021-22|
Click to download a zipped copy of the above files.
After watching this video, you may like to test your understanding by doing one or more of the following exercises:
|Comapre two lists of grand prix races using sets to find any differences||Standard|
You can also download the answers to each exercise from the links above.
Making a video bigger
You can increase the size of your video to make it fill the screen like this:
Play your video (the icons shown won't appear until you do), then click on the full screen icon which appears as shown at its bottom right-hand corner.
When you've finished viewing a video in full screen mode, just press the Esc key to return to normal view.
Improving the quality of a video
To improve the quality of a video, first click on the Settings icon:
Make sure you're playing your video so that the icons shown appear, then click on this gear icon at the bottom right-hand corner.
Choose to change the video quality:
Click on Quality as shown to bring up the submenu.
The higher the number you choose, the better will be your video quality (but the slower the connection speed):
Don't choose the HD option unless you have a fast enough connection speed to support it!
Is your Wise Owl speaking too slowly (or too quickly)? You can also use the Settings menu above to change your playback speed.
