NumPy in a Nutshell

Function array()Function array()

In fact, there are various functions in NumPy for creating arrays. Now, we'll explore one of the most commonly used ones, namely np.array(). Below, you'll find an example of how to use this function:

Let's now determine the type of object that this function creates. We can do this using the well-known function type().


The type() function takes an object of any type and returns its type. The argument can indeed be of any type: number, string, list, dictionary, tuple, function, class, module, etc.

We can see the type of the created array is ndarray. But what does that mean? ndarray - This object is a multidimensional homogeneous array with a predetermined number of elements.

Now it's time to practice!


  1. You have to create two NumPy arrays. The first one should look like this: [65, 2, 89, 5, 0, 1] and the second one should look like this: [1, 2, 3].
  2. Display these arrays on the screen.
  3. Display the type of these arrays on the screen.

If you encounter any difficulties, refer to the hint; it will likely assist you.
