numpy.char.multiply() function in Python
• Last Updated : 29 Aug, 2020

The multiply() method of the char class in the NumPy module is used for element-wise string multiple concatenation.

### numpy.char.multiply()

Syntax : numpy.char.multiply(a, i)
Parameters :

• a : array of str or unicode
• i : number of times to be repeated

Returns : Array of strings

Example 1 : Using the method on a single element string array.

## Python3

 `# importing the module``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# created an array``arr1 ``=` `np.array([``'Geeks'``])``print``(``"Original Array :"``)``print``(arr1)`` ` `# number of times to be repeated``i ``=` `3`` ` `# using the char.multiply() method``arr2 ``=` `np.char.multiply(arr1, i)``print``(``"\nNew array :"``)``print``(arr2)`

Output :

```Original Array :
['Geeks']

New array :
['GeeksGeeksGeeks']
```

Example 2 : Using the method on multiple elements string array.

## Python3

 `# importing the module``import` `numpy as np`` ` `# created an array``arr1 ``=` `np.array([``'Geeks'``, ``'for'``, ``'Geeks'``])``print``(``"Original Array :"``)``print``(arr1)`` ` `# number of times to be repeated``i ``=` `2`` ` `# using the char.multiply() method``arr2 ``=` `np.char.multiply(arr1, i)``print``(``"\nNew array :"``)``print``(arr2)`

Output :

```Original Array :
['Geeks' 'for' 'Geeks']

New array :
['GeeksGeeks' 'forfor' 'GeeksGeeks']
```
