In this article, we will see how to split a list into multiple sub-lists.

Python lists are non-homogeneous and used to store multiple values of different data types which can be either numeric, Boolean, characters, etc under the same name.

### Following is an example of how to separate a list into multiple sub-lists.

``````def listSplit(srcList, subLists=1):
length = len(srcList)
return [ srcList[i*length // subLists: (i+1)*length // subLists]
for i in range(subLists) ]

# Create a list
A = [0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]

print(listSplit(A, subLists=1))
print(listSplit(A, subLists=3))
print(listSplit(A, subLists=8))``````

### Explanation:

• listSplit accepts two parameters, i.e. original list and no of sublists you would like to create.
• Get the length of the list that you want to divide.
• For example, if the length of the list is 6 and the sublist size is 3, then the first sublist will be in the range of 0 to 2, and the second sublist will be in the range of 3 to 5, and so on…
