# NumPy: Create a vector with values ranging from 15 to 55 and print all values except the first and last

## NumPy: Basic Exercise-19 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to create a vector with values ranging from 15 to 55 and print all values except the first and last.

This NumPy program creates a vector with values ranging from 15 to 55. It then prints all elements of the vector except the first and last ones. By utilizing NumPy's array slicing capabilities, the program efficiently extracts and displays the specified subset of the vector's elements.

**Sample Solution** :

**Python Code :**

```
# Importing the NumPy library with an alias 'np'
import numpy as np
# Creating a NumPy array 'v' containing integers from 15 to 54 using np.arange()
v = np.arange(15, 55)
# Printing a message indicating the original vector 'v'
print("Original vector:")
print(v)
# Printing a message indicating all values of the vector 'v' except the first and last elements using slicing [1:-1]
print("All values except the first and last of the said vector:")
print(v[1:-1])
```

Output:

Original vector: [15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54] All values except the first and last of the said vector: [16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53]

**Explanation:**

In above code the np.arange() function creates a NumPy array containing values within a specified interval. In this case, it generates an array starting at 15 and ending before 55, with a default step size of 1. This results in an array of integers from 15 to 54.

The print(v[1:-1]) function prints a slice of the array 'v' to the console, starting from the second element (index 1) and ending before the last element (index -1). In Python, negative indices count from the end of the array. The slice v[1:-1] will exclude the first and last elements of the original array, resulting in an output of integers from 16 to 53.
