# Return the ceil of a specific array element in Numpy

To return the ceil of a specific element, use the index value in the numpy.ceil() method in Python Numpy. The ceil of the scalar x is the smallest integer i, such that i >= x. It is often denoted as $\mathrm{\lceil X \rceil}$. The function returns the ceil of each element in x, with float dtype. This is a scalar if x is a scalar.

The out is a location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np

Create an array using the array() method −

arr = np.array([39.5, 57.4, 100.8, 34.9, 76.5, -59.8])


Display the array −

print("Array...", arr)

Get the type of the array −

print("Our Array type...", arr.dtype)


Get the dimensions of the Array −

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

Get the number of elements in the Array −

print("Number of elements...", arr.size)


Return the ceil of the array elements, element-wise −

print("Result (ceil)...",np.ceil(arr))

To return the ceil of a specific element, use the index value in the numpy.ceil() method in Python Numpy −

print("Result (ceil of a specific element)...",np.ceil(arr[3]))


## Example

import numpy as np

# Create an array using the array() method
arr = np.array([39.5, 57.4, 100.8, 34.9, 76.5, -59.8])

# Display the array
print("Array...", arr)

# Get the type of the array
print("Our Array type...", arr.dtype)

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

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

# Return the ceil of the array elements, element-wise
print("Result (ceil)...",np.ceil(arr))

# To return the ceil of a specific element, use the index value in the numpy.ceil() method in Python Numpy
print("Result (ceil of a specific element)...",np.ceil(arr[3]))

## Output

Array...
[ 39.5 57.4 100.8 34.9 76.5 -59.8]

Our Array type...
float64

Our Array Dimensions...
1

Number of elements...
6

Result (ceil)...
[ 40. 58. 101. 35. 77. -59.]

Result (ceil of a specific element)...
35.0
