NumPy: Calculate percentiles for a sequence or single-dimensional NumPy array

NumPy: Array Object Exercise-107 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to calculate percentiles for a sequence or single-dimensional NumPy array.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import numpy as np
nums = np.array([1,2,3,4,5])
print("50th percentile (median):")
p = np.percentile(nums, 50)
print(p)
print("40th percentile:")
p = np.percentile(nums, 40)
print(p)
print("90th percentile:")
p = np.percentile(nums, 90)
print(p)

Sample Output:

50th percentile (median):
3.0
40th percentile:
2.6
90th percentile:
4.6
