# Map and Lambda Function Hackerrank Solution

## Map and Lambda Function Hackerrank Solution

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.

```>> 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.

Sample Input

```5
```

Sample Output

```[0, 1, 1, 8, 27]
```

Explanation

The first 5 fibonacci numbers are [0,1,1,2,3], and their cubes are [0,1,1,8,27].

Code:

```#Map and Lambda Function Hackerrank Solution

cube = lambda x:x*x*x

def fibonacci(n):

a, b= 0, 1
for _ in range(n):
yield a
a, b = b, a + b

if __name__ == '__main__':
n = int(raw_input())
print map(cube, fibonacci(n))
