# Python Numpy Array Tutorial Part 2

In the first part, we have discussed what is Numpy package, how to install and how to use it. In this part we will discuss about basic Numpy array functions of Numpy. If you have not read first part, I will recommend to check it.

First of all, we will import numpy package in the file and then create a Numpy array, on which, we will perform basic array function.

``````import numpy as np

# create numpy array
x = np.array([[1, 2, 3],
[4, 5, 6],
[7, 8, 9]])
# print array
print(x)``````

And then from the Terminal go to file location and execute the file with bellow command.

``python index.py``

It will run the script and print the array.

### Basic functions

Let's first work with array functions

`ndarray.shape` Returns the shape of the array

``````print(x.shape)
>>> (3, 3)``````

`ndarray.ndim` returns number of dimentions of the array

``````print(x.ndim)
>>> 2``````

`ndarray.itemsize` returns byte size of each elements of the array

``````print(x.itemsize)
>>> 8``````

`ndarray.dtype` returns type of array elements

``````print(x.dtype)
>>> int64``````

`ndarray.size` returns total number of elements of the array

``````print(x.size)
>>> 9``````

#### We can access the array by its indexes. Numpy index starts from the 0.

Get first indexed element

``````print(x)
>>> [1 2 3]``````

Get between two indexed elements including first index

``````print(x[0:2])
>>> [[1 2 3]
[4 5 6]]``````

Get elements from the first indexed

``````print(x[1:])
>>> [[4 5 6]
[7 8 9]]``````

Get elements from the reverse

``````print(x[-1:])
>>> [[7 8 9]]``````

#### Adding or deleting elements from the array.

``````x = np.append(x, [1, 2])
print(x)
>>> [1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 1 2]``````

Remove the elements of the position and create new array

``````x = np.delete(x, 1)
print(x)
>>> [1 3 4 5 6 7 8 9]``````

Sort the elements in the array

``````x = np.sort(x)
print(x)
[[1 3 9]
[1 4 6]
[7 8 9]]``````

Reshape the array columns and rows

``````x = x.reshape(1, 9)
print(x)
>>> [[1 9 3 4 5 6 7 8 9]]``````

#### Now let's see how to create numpy array with other methods

Create array with arrange() and reshape() method

``````x = np.arange(15).reshape(3, 5)
>>> print(x)
>>> [[ 0  1  2  3  4]
[ 5  6  7  8  9]
[10 11 12 13 14]]``````

Create array with all zero elements

``````x = np.zeros((2, 2))
>>> print(x)
>>> [[0. 0.]
[0. 0.]]``````

Create array with all elements with 1 value

``````x = np.ones((2,3))
>>> [[1. 1. 1.]
[1. 1. 1.]]``````

Create array with constant value

``````x = np.full((2, 3), 3)
>>> print(x)
>>> [[3 3 3]
[3 3 3]]``````

Create sequance array with 4 up to 20

``````x = np.arange(0, 20, 4)
>>> print(x)
>>> [ 0  4  8 12 16]``````

create an array with values that are spaced linearly in a specified interval:

``````x = np.linspace(0, 8, 5)
>>> print(x)
>>> [0. 2. 4. 6. 8.]``````

In the next part, we will discuss more about basic operations on Numpy array.
