[Numpy-discussion] Changing a matrix element into a scalar

Matrices are two dimensional arrays so you need two indices to access an individual element:

In [1]: from numpy import matrix

In [2]: m = matrix([[1.2],[2.3]])

In [3]: m[0,0]
Out[3]: 1.2

How do I access 1.2 in such a way as to end up with a float? I keep 
getting a matrix.
from numpy import matrix
m = matrix([[1.2],[2.3]])
