# Python | Numpy matrix.take()

With the help of `Numpy matrix.take()` method, we can select the elements from a given matrix by passing the parameter as index value of that element. It will return a matrix having one dimension. Remember it will work for one axis at a time.

Syntax : `matrix.take(index, axis)`
Return : Return matrix of selected indexes

Example #1 :
In this example we can see that by selecting one index we get only one value in a matrix by using `matrix.take()` method.

 `# import the important module in python ` `import` `numpy as np ` `             `  `# make matrix with numpy ` `gfg ``=` `np.matrix(``'[4, 1, 12, 3, 4, 6, 7]'``) ` `             `  `# applying matrix.take() method ` `geek ``=` `gfg.take(``2``) ` `   `  `print``(geek) `

Output:

```[]
```

Example #2 :

 `# import the important module in python ` `import` `numpy as np ` `             `  `# make matrix with numpy ` `gfg ``=` `np.matrix(``'[4, 1, 9; 12, 3, 1; 4, 5, 6]'``) ` `             `  `# applying matrix.take() method ` `geek ``=` `gfg.take(``0``, ``1``) ` `   `  `print``(geek) `

Output:

```[[ 4 12  4]]
```
