# Indexerror: tuple index out of range

## Problem:

indexerror: tuple index out of range what does it mean? Why I am getting this error?
Please shed some light on this if possible.

Gratitude.

## Solution:

The “IndexError” happens when you run out of your array length. This error happens with the following code:

``````>>> test_tuple = (1, "Hello", True)
>>> len(test_tuple)
3
>>> test_tuple
1
>>> test_tuple  # Trying to access the 4th element
IndexError: tuple index out of range``````

Now coming to the second part of your question. Please focus on this simple python program. I got the error when I tried to access the element I don’t have ever. This is similar to trying to access the 10th element of a list of length 9.
I hope you get the point. Thanks.

Problem: Please consider the following code: i = [1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13] j = [] k = 0 for l in i: j[k] = l k += 1 print j The output (Python 2.6.6 on Win 7 32-bit) is: > Traceback (most recent call last): > j[k] = l IndexError: list assignment index out of range I guess it's something simple I don't understand. Can someone clear it up?

Problem: I am trying to adopt the python programming language. Learning it step by step and practicing daily. I&rsquo;ve written simple code that contains a list and run an iteration on it but it shows: python indexerror: list assignment index out of range m = [1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13] n = [] o = 0 for l in m: n[o] = l o += 1 print n Where did I wrong? Any Idea?

Problem: I was discovering String in python. Suddenly I stuck here by getting &ldquo;indexerror: string index out of range&rdquo; this error message. def print_letters(string): count = 0 newstring = [] while count <= len(string): m = string[count] count +=1 print m print_letters("blanks") Do you have any idea? I&rsquo;d appreciate it if you figure the error in my program.

Problem: I have been doing programming for a while and I am using python for this. So my question is What is an advantage of using a tuple rather than a list? Thank you
