Create is a helper method that you can call to instantiate a 2-tuple object without having to explicitly specify the types of its components. The following example uses the Create method to instantiate a 2-tuple.

var tuple2 = Tuple.Create("New York", 32.68);

This code is equivalent to the following call to the Tuple<T1, T2> class constructor.

var tuple2 = new Tuple<string, double>("New York", 32.68);
