Negative Indexing | Indexing and Slicing
NumPy in a Nutshell

## Negative Indexing

We discussed positive indexing, but there is also negative indexing. Negative indexing starts from the end, with index `-1` referring to the last element, index `-2` referring to the second-to-last element, and so on.

This example illustrates how to retrieve a value of 10 from a given two-dimensional array using negative indexing.

The first index determines the row we choose (`-1` refers to the last row), while the second index corresponds to the element we select within that row (`-1` is the last one). As a result, we obtain a value of `10`. Run the code above to verify it.

You have the following array: `[[-4, 3, 1], [2, 10, -4]]`

1. Access the value `10`.

Let's give it a try. Use only negative indices.

Everything was clear?
