Rank array numbers in Python
In python, how can we provide a function that takes as input:
● A number
● An array
and then provides as an output the rank of the
number in the array. If the number is not part of the array then it should be
the rank of the number lower than the value given.
For example, if the function was given
● the values 7.23 and
[1.2,4.3,5,7.23,63.1] then the rank should be 4.
● the values 3.5 and
[1.2,4.3,5,7.23,63.1] then the rank should be 1.
● the values 100 and
[1.2,4.3,5,7.23,63.1] then the rank should be 5.
Any suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks
Thanks for reaching out.
Please, use the following code:
def rank_arr(number, arr=):
if number in arr:
rank = arr.index(number) + 1
This code works if the number is in the array. Could you please explain what the result should be in case the number is not in the array? Please, use new examples because from the provided examples it is not clear. Thank you.
Looking forward to your answer.
