# Hypot Function - Python Math Module

## Method name:

hypot(aPointX_in, aPointY_in)

## Method overview:

hypot() function from the math module of python, calculates and returns the Euclidian Distance
between the origin(0,0) and a specified point. The value returned is also called as the
Euclidian Norm.

It is square root of the sume of the two values: Square of X coordinate value  and Square Y coordinate value.

## Parameters:

aPointX_in : X coordinate value
aPointY_in : Y coordinate value

## Return value:

The distance from origin to the point at location(x,y)

## Example:

 import math   PointA = (5,5) #A point tuple distance = round(math.hypot(PointA,PointA),2) print("Euclidian distance between origin and PointA:{}".format(distance))   #Find the X Intercept distance of a point XIntercept = (7,0) #A point that falls exactly on X axis XInterceptDistance = math.hypot(XIntercept,XIntercept) print("Euclidian distance between origin and X Intercept:{}".format(XInterceptDistance))   #Find the Y Intercept distance of a point YIntercept = (0,5) #A point that falls exactly on Y axis YInterceptDistance = math.hypot(YIntercept,YIntercept) print("Euclidian distance between origin and Y Intercept:{}".format(YInterceptDistance))

## Output:

 Euclidian distance between origin and PointA:7.07 Euclidian distance between origin and X Intercept:7.0 Euclidian distance between origin and Y Intercept:5.0
