# Python | Multiply 2d numpy array corresponding to 1d array

Given a two numpy arrays, the task is to multiply 2d numpy array with 1d numpy array each row corresponding to one element in numpy. Let’s discuss a few methods for a given task.

Method #1: Using np.newaxis()

 `# Python code to demonstrate ` `# multiplication of 2d array ` `# with 1d array ` ` `  `import` `numpy as np ` ` `  `ini_array1 ``=` `np.array([[``1``, ``2``, ``3``], [``2``, ``4``, ``5``], [``1``, ``2``, ``3``]]) ` `ini_array2 ``=` `np.array([``0``, ``2``, ``3``]) ` ` `  `# printing initial arrays ` `print``(``"initial array"``, ``str``(ini_array1)) ` ` `  `# Multiplying arrays ` `result ``=` `ini_array1 ``*` `ini_array2[:, np.newaxis] ` ` `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"New resulting array: "``, result) `

Output:

```initial array [[1 2 3]
[2 4 5]
[1 2 3]]
New resulting array:  [[ 0  0  0]
[ 4  8 10]
[ 3  6  9]]
```

Method #2: Using axis as none

 `# Python code to demonstrate ` `# multiplication of 2d array ` `# with 1d array ` ` `  `import` `numpy as np ` ` `  `ini_array1 ``=` `np.array([[``1``, ``2``, ``3``], [``2``, ``4``, ``5``], [``1``, ``2``, ``3``]]) ` `ini_array2 ``=` `np.array([``0``, ``2``, ``3``]) ` ` `  `# printing initial arrays ` `print``(``"initial array"``, ``str``(ini_array1)) ` ` `  `# Multiplying arrays ` `result ``=` `ini_array1 ``*` `ini_array2[:, ``None``] ` ` `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"New resulting array: "``, result) `

Output:

```initial array [[1 2 3]
[2 4 5]
[1 2 3]]
New resulting array:  [[ 0  0  0]
[ 4  8 10]
[ 3  6  9]]
```

Method #3: Using transpose()

 `# python code to demonstrate ` `# multiplication of 2d array ` `# with 1d array ` ` `  `import` `numpy as np ` ` `  `ini_array1 ``=` `np.array([[``1``, ``2``, ``3``], [``2``, ``4``, ``5``], [``1``, ``2``, ``3``]]) ` `ini_array2 ``=` `np.array([``0``, ``2``, ``3``]) ` ` `  `# printing initial arrays ` `print``(``"initial array"``, ``str``(ini_array1)) ` ` `  `# Multiplying arrays ` `result ``=` `(ini_array1.T ``*` `ini_array2).T ` ` `  `# printing result ` `print``(``"New resulting array: "``, result) `

Output:

```initial array [[1 2 3]
[2 4 5]
[1 2 3]]
New resulting array:  [[ 0  0  0]
[ 4  8 10]
[ 3  6  9]]
```
