In these articles, we will discuss how to read data from excel and perform some mathematical operation and store it into a new column in DataFrame. Suppose our excel file looks like this.
Then we have to compute the sum of two-column and find out the maximum value and store into a new DataFrame column.
- Import Pandas module.
- Read data from Excel.
- Create a new column for storing Sum and maximum.
- Set the Index of each column for accessing the element.
- Store the sum of two-columns in a new column.
- And store Maximum number from two columns in a column.
- Display DataFrame.
Step 1: Importing module and reading from excel.
Step 2: Create a new column for storing sum and max
Step 3: Set an index for accessing the required column.
