NumPy: Create a 10x10 matrix, in which the elements on the borders will be equal to 1, and inside 0

NumPy: Basic Exercise-28 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to create a 10x10 matrix, in which the elements on the borders will be equal to 1, and inside 0.

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import numpy as np
x = np.ones((10, 10))
x[1:-1, 1:-1] = 0
print(x)

Sample Output:

[[ 1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  0.  1.]
 [ 1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.  1.]]

Previous: Write a NumPy program to create a 3x3 identity matrix, i.e. diagonal elements are 1,the rest are 0.
Next: Write a NumPy program to create a 5x5 zero matrix with elements on the main diagonal equal to 1, 2, 3, 4, 5.
