## 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)) #Map and Lambda Function Hackerrank Solution
