# numpy.not_equal() in Python

numpy.not_equal(x1, x2[, out]) : checks whether two element or unequal or not.
Parameters :

```x1, x2 : [array_like]Input Array whose elements we want to check
out    : [ndarray, optional]Output array that returns True/False.
A placeholder the same shape as x1 to store the result.
```

Return :

```Boolean array
```

Code 1 :

 `# Python Program illustrating ` `# numpy.not_equal() method ` `  `  `import` `numpy as geek  ` ` `  `a  ``=` `geek.not_equal([``1.``, ``2.``], [``1.``, ``3.``]) ` `print``(``"Not equal : \n"``, a, ``"\n"``) ` ` `  `b ``=` `geek.not_equal([``1``, ``2``], [[``1``, ``3``],[``1``, ``4``]]) ` `print``(``"Not equal : \n"``, b, ``"\n"``) `

Output :

```Not equal :
[False  True]

Not equal :
[[False  True]
[False  True]]
```

Code 2 :

 `# Python Program illustrating ` `# numpy.not_equal() method ` `   `  `import` `numpy as geek  ` ` `  `# Here we will compare Complex values with int ` `a ``=` `geek.array([``0` `+` `1j``, ``2``]) ` `b ``=` `geek.array([``1``,``2``]) ` ` `  `d  ``=` `geek.not_equal(a, b) ` `print``(``"Comparing complex with int using .not_equal() : "``, d) `

Output :

`Comparing complex with int using .not_equal() :  [ True False]`

Code 3 :

 `# Python Program illustrating ` `# numpy.not_equal() method ` `   `  `import` `numpy as geek  ` ` `  `# Here we will compare Float with int values ` `a ``=` `geek.array([``1.1``, ``1``]) ` `b ``=` `geek.array([``1``, ``2``]) ` `  `  `d  ``=` `geek.not_equal(a, b) ` `print``(``"\nComparing float with int using .not_equal() : "``, d) `

Output :

` Comparing float with int using .not_equal() :  [ True  True]`
