Pandas: Index of certain element of a Series

Pandas Indexing: Exercise-18 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to get the index of an element of a given Series.

Sample Solution:

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
ds = pd.Series([1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15], index=[0,1,2,3,4,5,7,8])
print("Original Series:")
print(ds)
print("\nIndex of 11 in the said series:")
x = ds[ds == 11].index[0]
print(x)

Sample Output:

Original Series:
0     1
1     3
2     5
3     7
4     9
5    11
7    13
8    15
dtype: int64

Python: Tips of the Day

Measure the execution time of small bits of Python code with the "timeit" module.

Example:

import timeit
print(timeit.timeit('"-".join(str(n) for n in range(100))',
number=100000))

print(timeit.timeit('"-".join([str(n) for n in range(100)])',
number=100000))

print(timeit.timeit('"-".join(map(str, range(100)))',
number=100000))

Output:
