# numpy.frexp¶

`numpy.``frexp`(x, [out1, out2, ]/, [out=(None, None), ]*, where=True, casting='same_kind', order='K', dtype=None, subok=True[, signature, extobj]) = <ufunc 'frexp'>

Decompose the elements of x into mantissa and twos exponent.

Returns (mantissa, exponent), where x = mantissa * 2**exponent`. The mantissa is lies in the open interval(-1, 1), while the twos exponent is a signed integer.

Parameters: x : array_like Array of numbers to be decomposed. out1 : ndarray, optional Output array for the mantissa. Must have the same shape as x. out2 : ndarray, optional Output array for the exponent. Must have the same shape as x. out : ndarray, None, or tuple of ndarray and None, optional A location into which the result is stored. If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to. If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned. A tuple (possible only as a keyword argument) must have length equal to the number of outputs. where : array_like, optional Values of True indicate to calculate the ufunc at that position, values of False indicate to leave the value in the output alone. **kwargs For other keyword-only arguments, see the ufunc docs. (mantissa, exponent) : tuple of ndarrays, (float, int) mantissa is a float array with values between -1 and 1. exponent is an int array which represents the exponent of 2.

`ldexp`
Compute `y = x1 * 2**x2`, the inverse of `frexp`.

Notes

Complex dtypes are not supported, they will raise a TypeError.

Examples

```>>> x = np.arange(9)
>>> y1, y2 = np.frexp(x)
>>> y1
array([ 0.   ,  0.5  ,  0.5  ,  0.75 ,  0.5  ,  0.625,  0.75 ,  0.875,
0.5  ])
>>> y2
array([0, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4])
>>> y1 * 2**y2
array([ 0.,  1.,  2.,  3.,  4.,  5.,  6.,  7.,  8.])
