Python: Add three lists using map function and lambda

Python map: Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a Python program to add three given lists using Python map and lambda.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

# Create three lists named nums1, nums2, and nums3 with integer elements
nums1 = [1, 2, 3]
nums2 = [4, 5, 6]
nums3 = [7, 8, 9]

# Print the original lists
print("Original list:")

# Use the map function to apply a lambda function that adds corresponding elements
# from nums1, nums2, and nums3 and create a new list
result = map(lambda x, y, z: x + y + z, nums1, nums2, nums3)

# Print the result of the map operation as a list
print("\nNew list after adding above three lists:")

Sample Output:

Original list: 
[1, 2, 3]
[4, 5, 6]
[7, 8, 9]

New list after adding above three lists:
[12, 15, 18]
