Indexing in numpy array


  I needed to convert the following stub operating on a python list , and make it suitable for a numpy array, but I can not seem to get the index function going for the numpy array

My method is called as follows: mymethod([1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10],3)   where b=3

You may try something like this...

import numpy as np
mylist = np.array([1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10])
b = 3
i = np.where(mylist == b)
