numpy.divide() in Python

numpy.divide(arr1, arr2, out = None, where = True, casting = ‘same_kind’, order = ‘K’, dtype = None) :
Array element from first array is divided by elements from second element (all happens element-wise). Both arr1 and arr2 must have same shape and element in arr2 must not be zero; otherwise it will raise an error.

Parameters :

arr1 : [array_like]Input array or object which works as dividend.
arr2 : [array_like]Input array or object which works as divisor.
out : [ndarray, optional]Output array with same dimensions as Input array,
placed with result.
**kwargs : allows you to pass keyword variable length of argument to a function.
It is used when we want to handle named argument in a function.
where : [array_like, optional]True value means to calculate the universal
functions(ufunc) at that position, False value means to leave the
value in the output alone.



Return :

An array with arr1/arr2(element-wise) as elements of output array.
