Filtering every nth row in a pandas DataFrame involves selecting only the rows that are multiples of n, i.e., the 1st row, the (n+1)th row, the (2n+1)th row, and so on. This operation can be useful in various situations, such as downsampling a large dataset to reduce its size or extracting a subset of data for analysis.
To filter every nth row in a Pandas dataframe, there are several methods you can use. Here are three different ways:

Using the "iloc" function:
You can use the iloc function to select every nth row. This method is useful if you know the index positions of the rows you want to select.
For example, to select every 5th row in a dataframe:
The `::5` in the iloc function selects every 5th row, starting from the first row (index position 0).

Using the "mod (%)" operator:
You can use the mod operator to select rows based on their position in the dataframe. This method is useful if you want to select every nth row, but don't know the index positions.
For example, to select every 4th row in a dataframe:
The `df.index % 4 == 0` condition selects rows where the index position is divisible by 4 (i.e., every 4th row).

Using the "groupby" function:
You can use the groupby function to group the rows by their position in the dataframe, and then select the first row of each group. This method is useful if you want to select every nth row, but don't know the index positions.
For example, to select every 3rd row in a dataframe:
The `df.index // 3` in the groupby function groups the rows into groups of three, and the first() function selects the first row of each group.
