numpy.mean() in Python

numpy.mean(arr, axis = None) : Compute the arithmetic mean (average) of the given data (array elements) along the specified axis.

Parameters :
arr : [array_like]input array.
axis : [int or tuples of int]axis along which we want to calculate the arithmetic mean. Otherwise, it will consider arr to be flattened(works on all
the axis). axis = 0 means along the column and axis = 1 means working along the row.
out : [ndarray, optional]Different array in which we want to place the result. The array must have the same dimensions as expected output.
dtype : [data-type, optional]Type we desire while computing mean.

Results : Arithmetic mean of the array (a scalar value if axis is none) or array with mean values along specified axis.

Output :

mean of arr, axis = None :  18.6

mean of arr, axis = 0 :  [17.33333333  8.33333333 31.         14.         22.33333333]

mean of arr, axis = 1 :  [24.  15.  16.8]

out_arr :  [0 1 2]
mean of arr, axis = 1 :  [24 15 16]
