Chapter: Intro to Pandas
Lecture: Concept: Working with columns
0:00 Now let's summarize some of the column work that we did in the previous exercise so that she can reference this in the future.
0:09 If you want to do math on a single column, use the brackets. Put the column name in there.
0:14 In this example, you can do this sum or the average on the extended amount column You can count or do number of unique values on a column.
0:25 If you want to do a frequency table and see how many products and how many examples or instances of that product there are,
0:34 you can use value counts. And then, if you want to add a new column in this example, if you want to do a mathematical calculation in this example,
0:42 we multiply our extended amount times 0.15 or you can enter in a string. And then pandas will make sure that everything is copied down,
0:52 essentially to all of the other values in the data frame. And then, when you want to work with multiple columns, you put a list inside the brackets,
1:02 and then this example will show the average for the price and the quantity, and you can do this for as many columns as you want in your data frame
