Use the zip() function to Python subtract lists element by element in Python.
Example subtract lists element by element in Python
list1 = [1, 2, 3] list2 = [1, 1, 1] res =  obj = zip(list1, list2) for i, j in obj: res.append(i - j) print(res)
Simple Python code to subtract if an element in the first list is greater than the element in the second list else we output the element of the first list.
l1 = [10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60] l2 = [60, 50, 40, 30, 20, 10] # using zip() res = [e1 - e2 if e1 > e2 else e1 for (e1, e2) in zip(l1, l2)] print(res)
Output: [10, 20, 30, 10, 30, 50]
