Examples of how to find common elements between two lists in python:

Table of contents

### Create two lists in python

Let's create a list in python

`list_a = ['e','0', 6, 'f', 4, 1, 'g']`

and another

`list_b = ['a','d', 1, 'o', 8, 3, 'e']`

### Find common elements between two lists

To find common elements between two lists, a solution is to use Python Set intersection() Method. To do so, let's first convert one of the two lists in a set:

`list_a_as_set = set(list_a)`

and then apply intersection

`intersection = list_a_as_set.intersection(list_b)`

`for i in intersection:`

`print( i )`

returns here

`1`

`e`

Note that:

`type(intersection)`

is a set.
