You say "index", but I think that is not what you mean. An index is in
integer referring to an element's position in the array. The "value"
at an index is what I believe you are referring to.
Nevertheless, I think list comprehension is what you want:
[ x for x in A if 3.0 <= x <= 8.0 ]
will extract all the values between 3 and 8 from the array A and create
a new list containing them.
If you want the new list to be a numpy array then
numpy.array([ x for x in A if 3.0 <= x <= 8.0 ])
