Numpy is a python library popular in the data science community. It can be used for multidimensional large array manipulation. It is also used for mathematical operations on arrays.

import numpy as np

Numpy array creation

Numpy arrays are homogeneous data structures, the data in an array has to be of the same data type.

>>> a_list = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9]
>>> a_arr=np.array(a_list) …

Some useful examples of using Python List

List indexing

Python list indexing is Zero-based indexing. In which 1st element is indexed as 0, the second element is indexed as 1 as so on…

>>> a_list=['first','second','third','fourth']
>>> print(a_list[0])
>>> print(a_list[1])
>>> print(a_list[-1])
>>> print(a_list[-2])…
