numpy.MaskedArray.average()
is used to return the weighted average of an array along a given axis.
Syntax:
numpy.ma.average (arr, axis = None, weights = None, returned = False)
Parameters:
arr: [array_like] Input masked array whose data to be averaged. Masked entries are not taken into account in the computation.
axis: [int, optional] Axis along which to average arr. If None, averaging is done over the flattened array.
weights: [array_like, optional] The importance that each element has in the computation of the average. If weights = None, then all data in arr are assumed to have a weight equal to one. If weights is complex, the imaginary parts are ignored.
returned: [bool, optional] It indicates whether a tuple (result, sum of weights) should be returned as output (True), or just the result (False). Default is False.Return: [scalar or MaskedArray] The average along the specified axis. When returned is True, return a tuple with the average as the first element and the sum of the weights as the second element.
Code # 1:

Output:
Input array: [[1 2] [3 1] [5 3] ] Masked array: [[ 2] [ 1] [5 3]] normal average of masked array: 0.75
Code # 2:

Output:
Input array: [[1 2] [3 1] [5 3]] Masked array: [[ 2] [ 1] [5 3]] weighted average of masked array: 1.7142857142857142
