# Divide each row by a vector element using NumPy

• Last Updated : 11 Oct, 2020

Prerequisite: Numpy module

The following article depicts how the rows of a Numpy array can be divided by a vector element. The vector element can be a single element, multiple element, or an array. Division operator ( / ) is employed to produce the required functionality.  We can divide rows of 1-D, 2-D, or even more types of arrays with vector element and the following examples will help you understand better:

Example 1:

## Python3

 `# Importing Numpy module ``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# Creating 1-D Numpy array``n_arr ``=` `np.array([``20``, ``30``, ``40``])``print``(``"Given 1-D Array:"``)``print``(n_arr)`` ` `# Vector element ``vec ``=` `np.array([``12``])``print``(``"\nVector element:"``)``print``(vec)`` ` `# Dividing rows of 1-D array with vector element``print``(``"\nResultant Array"``)``print``(n_arr ``/` `vec[:,``None``])`

Output:

In the above example, we divide the rows of 1-D Numpy array with vector element i.e [15]

Example 2:

## Python3

 `# Importing Numpy module ``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# Creating 2-D Numpy array``n_arr ``=` `np.array([[``20``, ``35``, ``40``],``                ``[``10``, ``51``, ``25``]])`` ` `print``(``"Given 2-D Array:"``)``print``(n_arr)`` ` `# Vector element ``vec ``=` `np.array([``2.5``])``print``(``"\nVector element:"``)``print``(vec)`` ` `# Dividing rows of 2-D array with vector element``print``(``"\nResultant Array"``)``print``(n_arr ``/` `vec[:,``None``])`

Output:

In the above example, we divide the rows of 2-D Numpy array with vector element i.e [2.5]

Example 3:

## Python3

 `# Importing Numpy module ``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# Creating 3-D Numpy array``n_arr ``=` `np.array([[[``10``, ``25``], [``30``, ``45``]], ``                  ``[[``50``, ``65``], [``70``, ``85``]]])`` ` `print``(``"Given 3-D Array:"``)``print``(n_arr)`` ` `# Vector element ``vec ``=` `np.array([``3``, ``3``])``print``(``"\nVector element:"``)``print``(vec)`` ` `# Dividing rows of 3-D array with vector element``print``(``"\nResultant Array"``)``print``(n_arr ``/` `vec[:,``None``])`

Output:

In the above example, we divide the rows of 3-D Numpy array with vector element i.e [3, 3]
