# Python – Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple

Sometimes, while working with Python tuples, we can have a problem in which we need to perform the removal of first occurrence of an element in tuple. This type of problem can have application in many domains such as school programming. Let’s discuss certain ways in which this task can be performed.

Input: test_tuple = (5, 6, 5, 4, 7, 8, 4), K = 5Output: (6, 5, 4, 7, 8, 4)Attention geek! Strengthen your foundations with the

Input: test_tuple = (5, 6, 8, 4, 7, 8, 4), K = 8Output: (5, 6, 4, 7, 8, 4)

**Method #1 : Using index() + loop + list slicing**

The combination of above functions can be used to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of extracting the first occurrence of K using index() and list slicing is used to reorder the tuple after element removal.

`# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple` `# Using index() + loop + list slicing` ` ` `# initializing tuples` `test_tuple ` `=` `(` `5` `, ` `6` `, ` `4` `, ` `4` `, ` `7` `, ` `8` `, ` `4` `)` ` ` `# printing original tuple` `print` `(` `"The original tuple : "` `+` `str` `(test_tuple))` ` ` `# initializing K ` `K ` `=` `4` ` ` `# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple` `# Using index() + loop + list slicing` `try` `:` ` ` `idx ` `=` `test_tuple.index(K)` ` ` `res ` `=` `test_tuple[:idx] ` `+` `test_tuple[idx ` `+` `1` `:]` `except` `ValueError: ` ` ` `res ` `=` `test_tuple` ` ` `# printing result ` `print` `(` `"Tuple after element removal : "` `+` `str` `(res))` |

**Output :**

The original tuple : (5, 6, 4, 4, 7, 8, 4) Tuple after element removal : (5, 6, 4, 7, 8, 4)

**Method #2 : Using enumerate() + generator expression**

This is one of the ways in which this task can be performed. This offers one liner way to solve this problem. In this, we perform the task of checking for element and index using enumerate().

`# Python3 code to demonstrate working of ` `# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple` `# Using enumerate() + generator expression` ` ` `# initializing tuples` `test_tuple ` `=` `(` `5` `, ` `6` `, ` `4` `, ` `4` `, ` `7` `, ` `8` `, ` `4` `)` ` ` `# printing original tuple` `print` `(` `"The original tuple : "` `+` `str` `(test_tuple))` ` ` `# initializing K ` `K ` `=` `4` ` ` `# Remove first occurrence of K in Tuple` `# Using enumerate() + generator expression` `res ` `=` `tuple` `(ele ` `for` `idx, ele ` `in` `enumerate` `(test_tuple) ` `if` `idx !` `=` `test_tuple.index(K))` ` ` `# printing result ` `print` `(` `"Tuple after element removal : "` `+` `str` `(res))` |

**Output :**

The original tuple : (5, 6, 4, 4, 7, 8, 4) Tuple after element removal : (5, 6, 4, 7, 8, 4)
