# Breaking down np.where with nested for-loop and if/else statement

Write Python code equivalent to the following:

``````even_odd = np.where(h % 2 == 0, 'even', 'odd')
``````

You should use nested for-loop and if/else statement.

You can start your code as the below:

``````even_odd = np.empty_like(h, dtype="<U4")
for i in range(h.shape[0]): # i is row index
for j in range(h.shape[1]): # j is column index
``````

You should get the results below:

``````array([['even', 'odd', 'even'],
['odd', 'even', 'odd'],
['even', 'odd', 'even'],
['odd', 'even', 'odd'],
['even', 'odd', 'even']], dtype='<U4')
``````

My Code Input:

``````even_odd = np.empty_like(h, dtype="<U4")
for i in range(h.shape[0]):
for j in range(h.shape[1]):
if (h[i, j] % 2 == 0):
h[i, j]
else:
h[i, j]
``````

Output:

``````even_odd
array([['', '', ''],
['', '', ''],
['', '', ''],
['', '', ''],
['', '', '']], dtype='<U4')
``````

I am trying to breakdown the code but cannot seem to find the solution. I am confused on how to get "even" or "odd" to show up on my array.

Under my if/else statement, I tried print("even") and print("odd") but I get the list above the array as my output:

``````even
odd
even
odd
even
odd
even
odd
even
odd
even
odd
even
odd
even
array([['', '', ''],
['', '', ''],
['', '', ''],
['', '', ''],
['', '', '']], dtype='<U4')
``````

I feel like I am close as I simply need to find a way to get the list content in the array. I researched similar questions on here but all of them seem to be from going from for-loop and if/else statement to np.where, I am trying to do the opposite.

Any insight/help would be greatly appreciated, trying to master the basics!

You forgot to assign values to your matrix!

``````even_odd = np.empty_like(h, dtype="<U4")
for i in range(h.shape[0]):
for j in range(h.shape[1]):
if (h[i, j] % 2 == 0):
even_odd[i, j]='even'
else:
even_odd[i, j]='odd'
print(even_odd)
``````
