To return the truncated value of the array elements, use the numpy.trunc() method in Python Numpy. The function returns the truncated value of each element in x. This is a scalar if x is a scalar. The truncated value of the scalar x is the nearest integer i which is closer to zero than x is. In short, the fractional part of the signed number x is discarded.

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.

The condition is broadcast over the input. At locations where the condition is True, the out array will be set to the ufunc result. Elsewhere, the out array will retain its original value. Note that if an uninitialized out array is created via the default out=None, locations within it where the condition is False will remain uninitialized.

## Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np

Create an array using the array() method −

arr = np.array([31.7, 27.4, -100.8, 50, -10.5, 76.8, -87.6])

Display the array −

print("Array...\n", arr)

Get the type of the array −

print("\nOur Array type...\n", arr.dtype)

Get the dimensions of the Array −

print("\nOur Array Dimensions...\n", arr.ndim)

Get the number of elements in the Array −

print("\nNumber of elements...\n", arr.size)

To return the truncated value of the array elements, use the numpy.trunc() method in Python Numpy −

print("\nResult (truncate)...\n",np.trunc(arr))

## Example

import numpy as np

# Create an array using the array() method
arr = np.array([31.7, 27.4, -100.8, 50, -10.5, 76.8, -87.6])

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

# Get the type of the array
print("\nOur Array type...\n", arr.dtype)

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

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

# To return the truncated value of the array elements, use the numpy.trunc() method in Python Numpy
print("\nResult (truncate)...\n",np.trunc(arr))

## Output

Array...
[ 31.7 27.4 -100.8 50. -10.5 76.8 -87.6]

Our Array type...
float64

Our Array Dimensions...
1

Number of elements...
7

Result (truncate)...
[ 31. 27. -100. 50. -10. 76. -87.]
