Pandas DataFrame Intersection Operation

In Pandas DataFrame Set Operation we can use merge() method to perform intersection operation. merge() function is a pre-defined function that can be used to do an intersection between two sets. It keeps the values present in both dataframe. This function takes both the dataframe as an argument.

Example

import pandas as pd

A = pd.DataFrame ({"name":["Jack","Alice"],
"Roll_No":[13,15]})

print(A)#first dataframe

Output

    name  Roll_No
0   Jack       13
1  Alice       15
B = pd.DataFrame ({"name":["Jack","Monica"],
"Roll_No":[13,19]})
print(B)#second dataframe

Output:

     name  Roll_No
0    Jack       13
1  Monica       19
result=A.merge(B)
print(result)

Output:

   name  Roll_No
0  Jack       13
