Hackerrank Linear Algebra Solution

The NumPy module also comes with a number of built-in routines for linear algebra calculations. These can be found in the sub-module linalg.

linalg.det

The linalg.det tool computes the determinant of an array.

print numpy.linalg.det([[1 , 2], [2, 1]])       #Output : -3.0


linalg.eig

The linalg.eig computes the eigenvalues and right eigenvectors of a square array.

vals, vecs = numpy.linalg.eig([[1 , 2], [2, 1]])
print vals                                      #Output : [ 3. -1.]
print vecs                                      #Output : [[ 0.70710678 -0.70710678]
#          [ 0.70710678  0.70710678]]


linalg.inv

The linalg.inv tool computes the (multiplicative) inverse of a matrix.

print numpy.linalg.inv([[1 , 2], [2, 1]])       #Output : [[-0.33333333  0.66666667]
#          [ 0.66666667 -0.33333333]]

Solution in python3

Approach 1.

import numpy
print(round(numpy.linalg.det(numpy.array([input().split() for _ in range(int(input()))],float)),2))

Approach 2.

import numpy
array=[list(map(float,input().split())) for i in range(int(input()))]
print(round(numpy.linalg.det(array),2))

Approach 3.

import numpy
N = int(input())
A = numpy.array([input().split() for _ in range(N)], float)
print(round(numpy.linalg.det(A),2))

Solution in python

Approach 1.

import numpy
print round(numpy.linalg.det([map(float,raw_input().split()) for _ in range(input())]),2)

Approach 2.

import numpy
print round(numpy.linalg.det([ map(float, raw_input().split()) for i in range(int(raw_input()))]),2)

Approach 3.

import numpy
n=int(raw_input())
m=[]
for i in range(n):
m.append(map(float,raw_input().split()))
print round(numpy.linalg.det(numpy.array(m)),2)
