## NumPy: Array Object Exercise-7 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to convert an array to a float type. Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

``````import numpy as np
import numpy as np
a = [1, 2, 3, 4]
print("Original array")
print(a)
x = np.asfarray(a)
print("Array converted to a float type:")
print(x)
```
```

Sample Output:

```Original array
[1, 2, 3, 4]
Array converted to a float type:
[ 1.  2.  3.  4.]
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Python: Inserting if statements using conditional list comprehensions

```x = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
result = []
for idx in range(len(x)):
if x[idx] % 2 == 0:
result.append(x[idx] * 2)
else:
result.append(x[idx])
result
```

Output:

```[1, 4, 3, 8, 5, 12]
```
`[(element * 2 if element % 2 == 0 else element) for element in x]`

Output:

```[1, 4, 3, 8, 5, 12]
```
`[element * 2 for element in x if element % 2 == 0]`

Output:

```[4, 8, 12]
```
