A look at how you can convert Pandas objects into scalars for more calculations

The Pandas library allows you to slice and dice data with ease. Typically, you’ll be working with DataFrames and Series in their various forms. You can aggregate data with groupby and even create a MultiIndex to give your table more hierarchy.

Sometimes, however, you’ll want to be able to work with data that isn’t in the form of a Pandas object. In these cases, it would be great to be able to convert your Pandas object into a Scalar value.

To do so, you can make use of just one line of code featuring a single in-built Pandas method. Let’s go through a few examples to see how you can do just that!
