NumPy: From given student name, height, and class sort the array on height

NumPy Sorting and Searching: Exercise-2 with Solution

Write a NumPy program to create a structured array from given student name, height, class and their data types. Now sort the array on height.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

import numpy as np
data_type = [('name', 'S15'), ('class', int), ('height', float)]
students_details = [('James', 5, 48.5), ('Nail', 6, 52.5),('Paul', 5, 42.10), ('Pit', 5, 40.11)]
# create a structured array
students = np.array(students_details, dtype=data_type)   
print("Original array:")
print(students)
print("Sort by height")
print(np.sort(students, order='height'))    

Sample Output:

Original array:
[(b'James', 5, 48.5 ) (b'Nail', 6, 52.5 ) (b'Paul', 5, 42.1 )
 (b'Pit', 5, 40.11)]
Sort by height
[(b'Pit', 5, 40.11) (b'Paul', 5, 42.1 ) (b'James', 5, 48.5 )
 (b'Nail', 6, 52.5 )]
