What is the process for importing NumPy and checking its version?

Can anyone provide instructions on how to import NumPy and check its version using Python, as I am a beginner and find it difficult to understand the process? I know that NumPy is essential for scientific computing in Python, but I am not sure about the steps involved in importing it and checking its version. Any guidance or code examples for importing NumPy and verifying its version would be greatly appreciated.
