Divide two dataframes with python

I have two dataframes : df1 and df2

df1 :

TIMESTAMP eq1 eq2 eq3
2016-05-10 13:20:00 40 30 10
2016-05-10 13:40:00 40 10 20


df2 :

TIMESTAMP eq1 eq2 eq3
2016-05-10 13:20:00 10 20 30
2016-05-10 13:40:00 10 20 20


I would like to divide df1 by df2 : each column of df1 by all column of df2 to get this result df3 :

TIMESTAMP eq1 eq2 eq3
2016-05-10 13:20:00 40/(10+10) 30/(20+20) 10/(30+20)
2016-05-10 13:40:00 40/(10+10) 10/(20+20) 20/(30+20)


Any idea please ?

Answer

You can use div, but before set_index from both columns TIMESTAMP:

df1.set_index('TIMESTAMP', inplace=True)
df2.set_index('TIMESTAMP', inplace=True)

print (df1.div(df2).reset_index())
            TIMESTAMP  eq1  eq2       eq3
0 2016-05-10 13:20:00  4.0  1.5  0.333333
1 2016-05-10 13:40:00  4.0  0.5  1.000000

EDIT by comment:

df1.set_index('TIMESTAMP', inplace=True)
df2.set_index('TIMESTAMP', inplace=True)
print (df2.sum())
eq1    20
eq2    40
eq3    50
dtype: int64

print (df1.div(df2.sum()).reset_index())
            TIMESTAMP  eq1   eq2  eq3
0 2016-05-10 13:20:00  2.0  0.75  0.2
1 2016-05-10 13:40:00  2.0  0.25  0.4
