.index()

The .index() method returns the index of the first occurrence of a specific value in a tuple. Otherwise, an exception is raised.

Syntax

tuple_instance.index(value)

The value is required in order for the .index() to search the tuple_instance.

Example

The following is an example of the .index() method:

my_tuple = ("I'm", "over", "here")
print(my_tuple.index("here"))
# Output: 2
