# Get the Inner product of two arrays in Python

PythonNumpyServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To get the Inner product of two arrays, use the numpy.inner() method in Python. Ordinary inner product of vectors for 1-D arrays, in higher dimensions a sum product over the last axes. The parameters are 1 and b, two vectors. If a and b are nonscalar, their last dimensions must match.

## Steps

At first, import the required libraries −

import numpy as np

Creating two numpy One-Dimensional array using the array() method −

arr1 = np.array([5, 10, 15])
arr2 = np.array([20, 25, 30])

Display the arrays −

print("Array1...\n",arr1)
print("\nArray2...\n",arr2)

Check the Dimensions of both the arrays −

print("\nDimensions of Array1...\n",arr1.ndim)
print("\nDimensions of Array2...\n",arr2.ndim)

Check the Shape of both the arrays −

print("\nShape of Array1...\n",arr1.shape)
print("\nShape of Array2...\n",arr2.shape)

To get the Inner product of two arrays, use the numpy.inner() method −

print("\nResult (Inner Product)...\n",np.inner(arr1, arr2))


## Example

import numpy as np

# Creating two numpy One-Dimensional array using the array() method
arr1 = np.array([5, 10, 15])
arr2 = np.array([20, 25, 30])

# Display the arrays
print("Array1...\n",arr1)
print("\nArray2...\n",arr2)

# Check the Dimensions of both the arrays
print("\nDimensions of Array1...\n",arr1.ndim)
print("\nDimensions of Array2...\n",arr2.ndim)

# Check the Shape of both the arrays
print("\nShape of Array1...\n",arr1.shape)
print("\nShape of Array2...\n",arr2.shape)

# To get the Inner product of two arrays, use the numpy.inner() method in Python
print("\nResult (Inner Product)...\n",np.inner(arr1, arr2))

## Output

Array1...
[ 5 10 15]

Array2...
[20 25 30]

Dimensions of Array1...
1

Dimensions of Array2...
1

Shape of Array1...
(3,)

Shape of Array2...
(3,)

Result (Inner Product)...
