Accessing a tuple in enumerate?

  • A+

I want to iterate through a list and sum all the elements. Except, if the number is a 5, I want to skip the number following that 5. So for example:

x=[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,5,4,3] #should results in 30.

I'm just not sure how I can access the index of a tuple, when I use enumerate. What I want to do, is use an if statement, that if the number at the previous index == 5, continue the loop.

Thanks you


Not a fan of bug-ridden one-liners that get upvoted.

So here's the answer with a for-loop.

x=[1,2,3,4,5,6,7,5,4,3, 5] #should results in 35.   s = 0 for i, v in enumerate(x):     if i != 0 and x[i-1] == 5:          continue      s += v  print(s)
