@sayzlimAug 12.2022 — We're talking about Python variables here. The "df" is usually a named variable that we refers to Pandas DataFrame. You can also call it something else.

We often use df['x'] to refer the header name of your tabular data. For example, if you have a DataFrame with the following headers:

Title, Description, Price


You can refer to your DataFrame's "Title" with df["Title"]

df[x] refers to the x variable.

For example:

x = "Title"

df[x] is equal to df["Title"]
×

Success!
