numpy.true_divide() in Python

(arr1, arr22, /, out=None, *, where=True, casting=’same_kind’, order=’K’, dtype=None, ufunc ‘true_divide’) :
Array element from first array is divided by the elements from second array(all happens element-wise). Both arr1 and arr2 must have same shape. Returns true division element-wise.

Python traditionally follow ‘floor division’. Regardless of input type, true division adjusts answer to its best.
“//” is floor division operator.
“/” is true division operator.

Parameters :



arr1     : [array_like]Input array or object which works as numerator.
arr2     : [array_like]Input array or object which works as denominator. 
out      : [ndarray, None, 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 :

If inputs are scalar then scalar; otherwise array with arr1 / arr2(element- wise) 
i.e. true division
