How to round away from zero a float array?

This recipe helps you round away from zero a float array

0

Recipe Objective

While dealing arrays, there is need to round off float numbers to some decimal places or even to an integer.

So this recipe is a short example on how to round away from zero a float array. Let's get started.

Step 1 - Import the library

import numpy as np

Let's pause and look at these imports. Numpy is generally used for working with arrays and performing mathematical operations in domain of linear algebra, fourier transform and matrices.

Step 2 - Defining round_array function

def round_array(x,y): return np.round(x,y)

This function takes x and y as input and return x rounded to y decimal places.

Step 3 - Setup the Data

test = np.array([32.11, 51.5, 0.112])

We have simply setup one random array

Step 4 - Printing rounded off array

print(round_array(test,0))

Firslty, we call our round_array function sending in our test dataset and 0 (places to which it will be rounded.

Step 5 - Lets look at our dataset now

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

[32. 52.  0.]
