# Tuple Methods

Let's dive into the primary methods associated with tuples.

• `len(t)` - gives the number of elements in the tuple `t`;
• `t * n` - produces `n` repetitions of the tuple `t`;
• `t.count(x)` - counts how often `x` appears in the tuple `t`.

In the previous chapter, we highlighted that tuples are immutable. So, you might wonder: "How can I update a tuple with new values?"

Unlike lists, you can't use methods like `.append()` or `.extend()` with tuples. However, remember a few chapters back when we discussed concatenation? Here's the method that works for tuples too:

`tuple1 + tuple2` - this joins two tuples together (both elements must be tuples).

For instance, let's add some new data to the tuple we were working with in the last example.

Just a heads up: make sure the data you're adding is also in tuple format to successfully concatenate.
