# How to check if 2 arrays are equal?

This recipe helps you check if 2 arrays are equal

0

## Recipe Objective

While operating over arrays, we might be interested in finding whether if the two arrays are equal in shape and values.

So this recipe is a short example on how to check if 2 arrays are equal. Let's get started.

## Step 1 - Import the library

``` import numpy as np ```

Let's pause and look at these imports. Numpy is generally helpful in data manipulation while working with arrays. It also helps in performing mathematical operation.

## Step 2 - Generating two arrays

``` x = np.array([1,2,3,4]) y = np.array([1,2,3]) ```

Here, we have created two simple arrays having differnet shape and values.

## Step 3 - Checking equality

``` np.array_equal(x,y) ```

Now we simply using array_equal function to compute for equality between two arrays.

## Step 4 - Let's look at our dataset now

Once we run the above code snippet, we will see:

```False
```
