# Get the Inner product of two One-Dimensional arrays in Python

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 in Python −

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

# Ordinary inner product of vectors for 1-D arrays, in higher dimensions a sum product over the last axes.
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)...
800
