Return : Return the random samples as numpy array.

Example #1 :

In this example we can see that by using numpy.random.vonmises() method, we are able to get the random samples from von mises distribution and return the numpy array.

## Python3

 `# import numpy``import` `numpy as np``import` `matplotlib.pyplot as plt`` ` `# Using vonmises() method``gfg ``=` `np.random.vonmises(``5``, ``3``, ``5000``)`` ` `plt.hist(gfg, bins ``=` `50``, density ``=` `True``)``plt.show()`

Output : Example #2 :

## Python3
