Sorry I'm a beginner and looking for some help dealing with some data..
So I have two lists:
One describes all participants scores in a game The other contains the number of times each participant played the game
scores=['win', 'draw', 'lose', 'lose', 'win', 'win'] trials=[2,3,1]
which means there were 3 participants, the first played two times and obtained 'win' and 'draw' etc.
How can I split the scores list so it becomes a nested list with each participants scores as a list? As I want to find a person's average score..
I've managed to get the first trial by doing:
trial1= for item in scores: trial1.append(scores[:trials]) print(trial1)
but no clue to get the others by making a loop Can anyone help? Or is there a better way for me to find a person's average score?
The other answers are good. You can also do it with a simple
for loop if you find that clearer:
scores = ['win', 'draw', 'lose', 'lose', 'win', 'win'] trials = [2, 3, 1] trial1 =  # This variable holds the first index of the next sublist idx = 0 for n in trials: trial1.append(scores[idx:idx + n]) # The next sublist starts where the previous one ended idx += n print(trial1)
[['win', 'draw'], ['lose', 'lose', 'win'], ['win']]
