the most confusing part of this exercise was trying to understand how everyone else got to their solution and seeing the answer to include one of the steps being
killed_manual_sum = killed.iloc[:,:3].sum(axis=1)
killed_manual_sum = killed[['pedestrians_killed', 'cyclist_killed', 'motorist_killed']].sum(axis=1)
and everything is okay now but when I first saw
iloc being used I had a minor freak out that I don’t intuitively know anything at all about selecting data.
comparing the two statements together and checking the
.value_counts() assures that they’re definitely kind-of-maybe-sort-of-perhaps similiar but why did I just immediately think of this and everyone else, plus the question-builders thought of
iloc instead? Will this be a problem for me in the future? Is this even remotely the same thing or would this have sent me flying off into the wrong direction?
please let me know if i have labeled/tagged this incorrectly/inefficiently and how I can do better.
