Import and check version of the NumPy package

This thread covers the method through which you can import the library of NumPy. Firstly, let’s cover what NumPy really is:

`NumPy` (short for Numerical Python) is a Python package that provides a powerful array object, N-dimensional array manipulation functions, and tools for working with these arrays.

  • It is often used for `scientific computing` and `data analysis`.
  • It provides efficient array operations and mathematical functions.
  • NumPy arrays are more efficient than Python's built-in data structures when working with large amounts of data, especially when performing mathematical operations.

Now, importing NumPy using the standard import statement and giving it an alias name, such as `np` and checking it's version.

1. Using the "__version__ attribute":

2. Using the "version" function:
