Python Tuple Length

Length of a Python Tuple denotes the number of items in it.

To get the length of a Tuple in Python, use len() builtin function. len() returns an integer representing the number of items in this Tuple.

Examples

1. Get the length of a given tuple

In this example, we have a Tuple with three items. When we use len() on the tuple, we should get 3 returned by the len() function.

Python Program

# Take a tuple
tuple1 = ('apple', 'banana', 'cherry')
# Get tuple length
tupleLength = len(tuple1)
# Print the value
print(tupleLength)
Run Code Copy

Output

3

2. Length of an empty tuple

Empty tuple contains no items, and therefore zero should be returned by len().

Python Program

tuple1 = ()
tupleLength = len(tuple1)
print(tupleLength)
Run Code Copy

Output

0
