Python Logic to Find List Duplicates

Image
In this post, I have shared top ideas to remove duplicates from the list. Those are with Append and Dictionary. 1. How to Remove Duplicates with Append # Here is a list with duplicates list_with_duplicates = [1,2,3,12,1,2,3,4,5,6,1,2,3,7,8,9] It is simple if you follow the first-approach - brute force approach: list_without_duplicates = [] for pd in list_with_duplicates:   if pd not in list_without_duplicates:       list_without_duplicates.append(pd) print(list_without_duplicates) Result: [1, 2, 3, 12, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9] This method has performance issues when the list is bigger in size.  Real-time. 2. How to Remove Duplicates with Dictionary # Here is you can convert a list to a dictionary dict_without_duplicates = dict(zip(list_with_duplicates, list_with_duplicates)) print(dictionary_without_duplicates) Result: {1: 1, 2: 2, 3: 3, 12: 12, 4: 4, 5: 5, 6: 6, 7: 7, 8: 8, 9: 9} Real-time. Once again, this works and has the advantage of taking less space than duplicating the entire list.
