# typeerror: only length-1 arrays can be converted to python scalars

## Problem :

I am getting below error:

`TypeError: only length-1 arrays can be converted to Python scalars`

How can I fix it?

## Solution :

This error "only length-1 arrays can be converted to Python scalars" is raised when the function expects a single value but you pass an array instead.

PFB code will solve your issue

```import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt

def f(x):
return np.int(x)
f2 = np.vectorize(f)
x = np.arange(1, 15.1, 0.1)
plt.plot(x, f2(x))
plt.show()```

You can skip the definition of f(x) and just pass np.int to the vectorize function: f2 = np.vectorize(np.int).

I was trying to write a programm using numpy and matplotlib. I am new to python programming. The code I wrote is: import numpy import matplotlib.pyplot def ThisFunction(a): return numpy.int(a) a = numpy.arange(3, 13.5, 0.7) matplotlib.pyplot.plot(a, ... 4, in ThisFunction return numpy.int(a) TypeError: only size-1 arrays can be converted to Python scalars how can I solve this problem?

Problem: f=np.loadtxt('Single Small Angle 1.txt',unpack=True,skiprows=2) g=np.loadtxt('Single Small Angle 5.txt',unpack=True,skiprows=2) x = f-g[:,:11944] t=range(len(x)) m=math.log10(abs(x)) np.polyfit(t,m) plt.plot(t,abs(x)) plt.show() I'm just not sure on how to fix my issue. It keeps saying: m=math.log10(abs(x)) TypeError: only length-1 arrays can be converted to Python scalars

Problem: I want to write a function that randomly picks elements from a training set, based on the bin probabilities provided. I divide the set indices to 11 bins, then create custom probabilities for them. bin_probs = [0.5, 0.3, 0.15, 0.04, 0.0025, 0.0025, 0.001, 0.001, ... It is 1-D, it is integer, and it is scalar. What am I missing? Note : I tried to pass indices with astype(int). Same error.
