tuple

noun; analogy
A group of one or more items or data in computer science. In computer science, one often manipulates data. A tuple is a group of one or more data items that are all related in some way. So, if you had a group of three numbers, you could consider it a tuple of three numbers, and that itself would be one item.
 
Store three integers in the tuple.
Etymology : Analogy to “double” or “triple”, perhaps.
