# Return element-wise string multiple concatenation in Numpy

To return element-wise string multiple concatenation, use the numpy.char.multiply() method in Python Numpy. The function multiply() returns the output array of string_ or unicode_, depending on input types.

The numpy.char module provides a set of vectorized string operations for arrays of type numpy.str_ or numpy.bytes_.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np

Create a One-Dimensional array of string −

arr = np.array(['Bella', 'Tom', 'John', 'Kate', 'Amy', 'Brad'])


Displaying our array −

print("Array...",arr)

Get the datatype −

print("Array datatype...",arr.dtype)


Get the dimensions of the Array −

print("Array Dimensions...",arr.ndim)

Get the shape of the Array −

print("Our Array Shape...",arr.shape)


Get the number of elements of the Array −

print("Elements in the Array...",arr.size)

The value of i is the number of times to repeat the string −

i = 4


To return element-wise string multiple concatenation, use the numpy.char.multiply() method. The arr1 and arr2 are out two input string arrays −

print("Result...",np.char.multiply(arr,i))

## Example

import numpy as np

# Create a One-Dimensional array of string
arr = np.array(['Bella', 'Tom', 'John', 'Kate', 'Amy', 'Brad'])

# Displaying our array
print("Array...",arr)

# Get the datatype
print("Array datatype...",arr.dtype)

# Get the dimensions of the Array
print("Array Dimensions...",arr.ndim)

# Get the shape of the Array
print("Our Array Shape...",arr.shape)

# Get the number of elements of the Array
print("Elements in the Array...",arr.size)

# The value of i is the number of times to repeat the string
i = 4
# To return element-wise string multiple concatenation, use the numpy.char.multiply() method in Python Numpy
# The arr1 and arr2 are out two input string arrays
print("Result...",np.char.multiply(arr,i))

## Output
