# A Soft Introduction to Numpy Arrays- Part 2: Slicing & Arithmetic Operations

This article can be considered a continuation of part 1.

**Slicing of Numpy Arrays:**

Slicing in NumPy works similarly to slicing in Python’s built-in lists, but has some additional features that can be useful. The general syntax for slicing a NumPy array is `a[start:stop:step, start:stop:step, ...]`

, where `a`

is…
