# Calculating the dot product of NumPy arrays

## Python Pandas Numpy: Exercise-20 with Solution

Calculate the dot product of two NumPy arrays.

**Sample Solution-1:**

**Python Code:**

```
import numpy as np
# Create two NumPy arrays
array1 = np.array([1, 2, 3])
array2 = np.array([4, 5, 6])
# Calculate the dot product
dot_product = np.dot(array1, array2)
# Display the result
print(dot_product)
```

Output:

32

**Sample Solution-2:**

**Python Code:**

```
import numpy as np
# Create two NumPy arrays
array1 = np.array([1, 2, 3])
array2 = np.array([4, 5, 6])
# Calculate the dot product
dot_product = array1 @ array2
# Display the result
print(dot_product)
```

Output:

21
