Python Pandas: Compute the minimum, 25th percentile, median, 75th, and maximum of a given series

Python Pandas: Data Series Exercise-18 with Solution

Write a Pandas program to compute the minimum, 25th percentile, median, 75th, and maximum of a given series.

Sample Solution :

Python Code :

import pandas as pd
import numpy as np
num_state = np.random.RandomState(100)
num_series = pd.Series(num_state.normal(10, 4, 20))
print("Original Series:")
print(num_series)
result = np.percentile(num_series, q=[0, 25, 50, 75, 100])
print("\nMinimum, 25th percentile, median, 75th, and maximum of a given series:")
print(result)

Sample Output:

Original Series:
0      3.000938
1     11.370722
2     14.612143
3      8.990256
4     13.925283
5     12.056875
6     10.884719
7      5.719827
8      9.242017
9     11.020006
10     8.167892
11    11.740654
12     7.665620
13    13.267388
14    12.690883
15     9.582355
16     7.874878
17    14.118931
18     8.247458
19     5.526727
dtype: float64

Minimum, 25th percentile, median, 75th, and maximum of a given series:
[ 3.00093811  8.09463867 10.23353705 12.21537733 14.61214321]

>>> a = ('one', 'two', 'three', 'four', 'five')
>>> if 'one' in a:
...     print('The tuple contains one.')
... 
The tuple contains one.
>>> b = {0: 'zero', 1: 'one', 2: 'two', 3: 'three'}
>>> if 2 in b.keys():
...     print('The dict has the key of 2.')
... 
The dict has the key of 2.
