Given the “legs” of a right triangle, return its hypotenuse in Python

PythonNumpyServer Side ProgrammingProgramming

To get the hypotenuse, use the numpy.hypot() method in Python Numpy. The method returns the hypotenuse of the triangle(s). This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars. This method is equivalent to sqrt(x1**2 + x2**2), element-wise. If x1 or x2 is scalar_like, it is broadcast for use with each element of the other argument. The parameters are the leg of the triangle(s). If x1.shape != x2.shape, they must be broadcastable to a common shape.

Steps

At first, import the required library −

import numpy as np

Creating an array with integer elements −

arr = np.ones((3, 3), dtype=int)

Displaying our array −

print("Array...\n",arr)

Get the datatype −

print("\nArray datatype...\n",arr.dtype)

Get the dimensions of the Array −

print("\nArray Dimensions...\n",arr.ndim)

Get the number of elements of the Array −

print("\nNumber of elements in the Array...\n",arr.size)

Get the hypotenuse −

print("\nHypotenuse..\n",np.hypot((3*arr), (4*arr)))

Example

import numpy as np

# To get the hypotenuse, use the numpy.hypot() method in Python Numpy.
# The method returns the hypotenuse of the triangle(s). This is a scalar if both x1 and x2 are scalars.
# This method is equivalent to sqrt(x1**2 + x2**2), element-wise. If x1 or x2 is scalar_like, it is broadcast for use with each element of the other argument.
# The parameters are the leg of the triangle(s). If x1.shape != x2.shape, they must be broadcastable to a common shape.

# Creating an array with integer elements
arr = np.ones((3, 3), dtype=int)

# Display the array
print("Array...\n", arr)

# Get the type of the array
print("\nOur Array type...\n", arr.dtype)

# Get the dimensions of the Array
print("\nOur Array Dimensions...\n",arr.ndim)

# Get the number of elements in the Array
print("\nNumber of elements...\n", arr.size)

# Get the hypotenuse
print("\nHypotenuse..\n",np.hypot((3*arr), (4*arr)))

Output

Array...
[[1 1 1]
[1 1 1]
[1 1 1]]

Our Array type...
int64

Our Array Dimensions...
2

Number of elements...
9

Hypotenuse..
[[5. 5. 5.]
[5. 5. 5.]
[5. 5. 5.]]
