# Import modules
import numpy as np
# Create a list
battle_deaths = [3246, 326, 2754, 2547, 2457, 3456]
battle_deaths
[3246, 326, 2754, 2547, 2457, 3456]
# Create an array from numpy
deaths = np.array(battle_deaths)
deaths
array([3246,  326, 2754, 2547, 2457, 3456])
# Create an array of zeros
defectors = np.zeros(6)
defectors
array([ 0.,  0.,  0.,  0.,  0.,  0.])
# Create a range from 0 to 100
zero_to_99 = np.arange(0, 100)
