The Quick and Easy Way to Analyze Numpy Arrays

The quickest and easiest way to analyze NumPy arrays is by using the numpy.array() method. This method allows you to quickly and easily analyze the values contained in a numpy array. This method can also be used to find the sum, mean, standard deviation, max, min, and other useful analysis of the value contained within a numpy array. Sum You can find the sum of Numpy arrays using the np.sum() function.  For example:  import numpy as np  a = np.array([1,2,3,4,5])  b = np.array([6,7,8,9,10])  result = np.sum([a,b])  print(result)  # Output will be 55 Mean You can find the mean of a Numpy array using the np.mean() function. This function takes in an array as an argument and returns the mean of all the values in the array.  For example, the mean of a Numpy array of [1,2,3,4,5] would be  result = np.mean([1,2,3,4,5])  print(result)  #Output: 3.0 Standard Deviation To find the standard deviation of a Numpy array, you can use the NumPy std() function. This function takes in an array as a par

How to Unpack a List into Variables Quickly in Python

Here are two examples to unpack a list in Python. You can do it easily by using splat operator. The asterisk in python is called a Splat operator. Here are two splat operators - Single and Double. Below, you will find examples. 1. Single splat operator Consider, for example, this code: abc = [1,2,3,4] print(abc)  Here the output will be: [1, 2, 3, 4] What if you didn't want the list output in list format? What if all you wanted was the list of values to be written to the output console? You could write them using a loop and one of the output functions, but Python prefers an easier way: print(*abc) 1 2 3 4 2. Double splat operator Here, I have written a function: def func(x,y,z):        return x + y + z print(func(**d)) It will show '6' as output. Since, I have assigned values for x,y, and z in a dictionary. So by using a double splat operator you assign values to the function. d = {  'x': 1,  'y': 2,  'z': 3  } Related posts 3 Advanced methods to rea
