The Python library `NumPy`

has a method called `remainder()`

. It is used to get the remainder of dividing two input arrays.

`numpy.remainder()`

methodThe `numpy.remainder()`

method returns the remainder by dividing two input arrays. This is done element-wise (element by element).

Note:A two-dimensional (2D) array can be created using a list of lists in Python.

```
numpy.remainder(x1, x2, dtype=None, out=None)
```

`x1`

: An`array_like`

that represents a dividend array.`x2`

: An`array_like`

that represents a divisor array.`dtype`

: This is an optional parameter. It represents the return type of the array.`out`

: This is an optional parameter. It represents the alternative output array in which the result is to be placed.

Note: If`x1`

and`x2`

have distinct shapes, they must be broadcastable to a common shape for output representation.

The `numpy.remainder()`

method returns the remainder of dividing two input arrays `x1/x2`

.

Note: In Python, the`remainder()`

function is equivalent to the modulus operator`x1 % x2`

.

The following code shows how to use the `numpy.remainder()`

method for two-dimensional (2D) arrays:

# import numpy import numpy as np # create a two 2D arrays x1 = np.array([[2,6,5],[3,4,8]]) x2 = np.array([[1,7,2],[10,9,4]]) # divide the 2D arrays # and store the remainder in result result = np.remainder(x1, x2) print(result)

Calculating the remainder

- Line 2: We import the
`numpy`

library. - Lines 4 and 5: We create two 2D arrays called
`x1`

, and`x2`

. - Line 9: We use the
`np.remainder()`

method, which returns an array containing the remainder of dividing array`x1`

by array`x2`

. The result is stored in a new variable called`result`

. - Line 11: We display the result.
