 # Python | Extracting numbers from a list of strings

Method # 1: Using comprehension list + `split()`

This particular problem can be solved using the list comprehension function to expand the logic for all elements, and the split function does the task of splitting and extracting the target desired element.

 ` # Python3 demo code ` ` # Extract numbers from a list of strings ` ` # using a list comprehension + split () `   ` # initializing list ` ` test_list ` ` = ` ` [` ` `Rs. 24` ` `, ` ` `Rs. 18` ` `, ` ` `Rs. 8` ` `, ` ` `Rs. 21` ` `] `   ` # print original list ` ` print ` ` (` ` "The original list:" ` ` + ` ` str ` ` (test_list)) `   ` # using list comprehension + split () ` ` # Extract numbers from a list of strings ` ` res ` ` = [ int (sub.split ( ` .` ) [ 1 ]) for sub in test_list] ````   # print result print ( "The list after Extracting numbers:" + str (res)) ```

Output:

` The original list: [`Rs. 24`, `Rs. 18`, `Rs. 8`, `Rs. 21`] The list after Extracting numbers: [24, 18, 8, 21] `

Method # 2: Using ` join () + isnumeric () + list comprehension + map()`

``` This method is preferred in cases where it is not predetermined that the numbers will be ordered in a certain way, i.e. this the method gives the flexibility to get a number from any possible position. # Python3 demo code # Extracting numbers from a list of strings # using join () + isnumeric () + list comprehension + map ()   # initializing list test_list = [ `Rs. 24` , `Rs. 18` , `Rs. 8` , `Rs. 21` ]   # print original list print ( "The original list:" + str (test_list))   # using join () + isnumeric () + list comprehension + map () # Extract numbers from a list of strings res = list ( map ( lambda sub: int (`` .join ( [ele for ele in sub if ele.isnumeric ()])), test_list))   # print result print ( "The list after Extracting numbers:" + str (res)) ```

` ` Output:

` The original list: [`Rs. 24`, `Rs. 18`, `Rs. 8`, `Rs. 21`] The list after Extracting numbers: [24, 18, 8, 21] `
