['A- 0.5', 'WC- 0.5', 'WC- 0.0', 'n- 0.0', 'WC- 0.3333333333333333', 'ABC- 1.7777777777777777', 'DEF- 1.0', 'GHI- 1.5']
```

i need it so i can sort by the number

I donâ€™t know what â€śsplit array into more arraysâ€ť means, but hereâ€™s how you can sort them by their number.

```
array = ['A- 0.5', 'WC- 0.5', 'WC- 0.0', 'n- 0.0', 'WC- 0.3333333333333333', 'ABC- 1.7777777777777777', 'DEF- 1.0', 'GHI- 1.5']
def sort_key(element):
return float(element.split("-")[1].strip())
sorted_array = sorted(array, key=sort_key)
```

Explanation:

`element.split("-")`

splits each string by dashes, so `"A- 0.5"`

becomes `["A", " 0.5"]`

. Then take the index `1`

for the number part. Then `strip()`

removes surrounding spaces. Then `float()`

converts it to a number.

```
your_data = ...
filtered = [ float( t.split("-",1)[1] ) for t in your_data]
```

Will it work for your data?
