# Map and Lambda Function (Python 3)

• URL : https://www.hackerrank.com/challenges/map-and-lambda-expression/problem{target=”_blank”}

• Let’s learn some new Python concepts! You have to generate a list of the first N fibonacci numbers, 0 being the first number. Then, apply the map function and a lambda expression to cube each fibonacci number and print the list.

• Concept

• The map() function applies a function to every member of an iterable and returns the result. It takes two parameters: first, the function that is to be applied and secondly, the iterables.
• Let’s say you are given a list of names, and you have to print a list that contains the length of each name.
```1 2 3 4 5 6 7 >> print (list(map(len, ['Tina', 'Raj', 'Tom']))) [4, 3, 3] Lambda is a single expression anonymous function often used as an inline function. In simple words, it is a function that has only one line in its body. It proves very handy in functional and GUI programming. >> sum = lambda a, b, c: a + b + c >> sum(1, 2, 3) 6 ```
• Note:

• Lambda functions cannot use the return statement and can only have a single expression. Unlike def, which creates a function and assigns it a name, lambda creates a function and returns the function itself. Lambda can be used inside lists and dictionaries.
• Input Format
• One line of input: an integer N.
• Constraints
• 0 <= N <= 15
• Output Format
• A list on a single line containing the cubes of the first N fibonacci numbers.

#### 일반적 문제풀이

• integer N이 주어지면 해당 N의 피보나치수열을 구하고 그 수열들을 3제곱 하는것
• lamda function을 이용해 fibo 함수를 만들고 그 함수를 다시 3제곱하는 lambda 함수를 넣음
```1 2 3 n = 5 fibo = lambda n : n if n < 2 else fibo(n-1) + fibo(n-2) list(map(lambda x : x**3, list(map(fibo, range(n))))) ```
```1 [0, 1, 1, 8, 27] ```

#### hackerrank 문제풀이

• cube라는 3제곱하는 함수를 lambda를 이용해 생성
• fibonacci 함수를 생성 하고, ls에 결과를 넣음
```1 2 3 4 5 6 7 cube = lambda x: x ** 3 def fibonacci(n): ls = [0, 1] for i in range(2,n): ls.append(ls[i-1] + ls[i-2]) return ls[:n] ```
```1 print(list(map(cube, fibonacci(n)))) ```
```1 [0, 1, 1, 8, 27] ```
