` Directions: Extract the 14th column in "taxi_first_five" . Assign to "fare_totals"`

My Code:

```
fare_totals= taxi_first_five- taxi_first_five[14]
```

What actually happened:

```
IndexError: index 14 is out of bounds for axis 0 with size 5
```

The correct answer is `fare_totals = taxi_first_five[:,13]`

but I don’t understand the logic of it. Can you please help me?

Hi alejandra.orcutt

The `taxi_first_five`

variable has the first 5 rows only. Hence, if you check the variable you could see that `taxi_first_five`

has 5 rows and 14 columns.

By `taxi_first_five[14]`

, you are trying to access the 13th row in `taxi_first_five`

, which doesn’t exist. That’s why you are getting the `IndexError`

.

This will assign all the rows in the 13th column of `taxi_first_five`

, which is the `total_amount`

column.

Is it clear now?
