tupleA tuple is used in various programming languages as an ordered list of elements and referenced as an n-tuple, where "n" is the number of elements in an ordered list. Most often, a tuple is represented by including the elements in parentheses, but a tuple may also use brackets or curly brackets. For example, "(5, 9, 11, 3, 22, 14)" would be a 6-tuple, as it has six elements in the ordered list.
