So I am new to all this. I was wondering in pandas can I convert my column values into numbers? I'll try and give an example to explain what I mean
So say for example I have a column called, 'animals', in this column I have six different animals but I want to convert them to numerical values so just as simple as 1,2,3,4,5,6 for each of the different animals. How would I go about doing this??
