NumPy is an abbreviated form of Numerical Python. It is used for different types of scientific operations in python. Numpy is a vast library in python which is used for almost every kind of scientific or mathematical operation. It is itself an array which is a collection of various methods and functions for processing the arrays.

The string is a group of characters, these characters may consist of all the lower case, upper case, and special characters present on the keyboard of a computer system. A string is a data type and the number of characters in a string is known as the length of the string.

## Problem statement

Suppose that we are given a NumPy array that contains integer values which we need to convert into string type values and print this array in such a way that each string is separated with a comma.

## Representing string of a numpy array with commas separating its elements

For this purpose, we will use the repr() method while printing the string type array. The repr() method returns a printable representation of the given object.

Let us understand with the help of an example,

## Python code to represent string of a numpy array with commas separating its elements

```# Import numpy
import numpy as np

# Creating a numpy array
arr =  np.array([[1,2,3,4],
[1,2,3,4],
[1,2,3,4]])

# Display original array
print("Original array:\n",arr,"\n")

# Converting array into str type
arr = arr.astype('O')

# Display array using repr function
print("Result:\n",repr(arr),"\n")
```

### Output

In this example, we have used the following Python basic topics that you should learn:
