# skflow pandas dataset mean down each 2 lines

I have a dataset X of lets say 2000 lines. I want to take each 2 lines and mean them col by col together. The result should be a 1000 line dataset (columns count should stay the same).

I did this in matlab already

``````#matlab function
function [ divisibleMatrix ] = meanDown( matrix )
%MEANDOWN takes a matrix and means every 2 lines (makes it half the size)

newSize = (floor(size(matrix, 1)/2)*2); %make it divisible
divisibleMatrix = matrix(1:newSize, 1:end);

D = divisibleMatrix;
m=size(divisibleMatrix, 1);
n=size(divisibleMatrix, 2);

% compute mean for two neighboring rows
D=reshape(D, 2, m/2*n);
D=(D(1,:)+D(2,:))/2;
D=reshape(D, m/2, n);

divisibleMatrix = D;
end
``````

This is a 1-liner. The key is that groupby can take an arbitrary mapping of index -> group. `df.index / 2` gives what you are looking.
