Finding index of maximum and minimum values in a NumPy array

Python Pandas Numpy: Exercise-21 with Solution

Find the index of the maximum and minimum value in a NumPy array.

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

``````import numpy as np

# Create a NumPy array
array = np.array([10, 5, 8, 20, 3])

# Find the index of the maximum value
max_index = np.argmax(array)

# Find the index of the minimum value
min_index = np.argmin(array)

# Display the results
print("Index of maximum value:", max_index)
print("Index of minimum value:", min_index)
```
```

Output:

```Index of maximum value: 3
Index of minimum value: 2
```

Explanation:

Here's a breakdown of the above code:

• First create a NumPy array “array”.
• The np.argmax(array) function returns the index of the maximum value in the array.
• The np.argmin(array) function returns the index of the minimum value in the array.
• The print() function displays the results.
