# Python Math: Compute Euclidean distance

## Python Math: Exercise-79 with Solution

Write a Python program to compute Euclidean distances.

Note: In mathematics, the Euclidean distance or Euclidean metric is the "ordinary" (i.e. straight-line) distance between two points in Euclidean space. With this distance, Euclidean space becomes a metric space. The associated norm is called the Euclidean norm.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

``````import math
# Example points in 3-dimensional space...
x = (5, 6, 7)
y = (8, 9, 9)
distance = math.sqrt(sum([(a - b) ** 2 for a, b in zip(x, y)]))
print("Euclidean distance from x to y: ",distance)
```
```

Sample Output:

```Euclidean distance from x to y:  4.69041575982343
```

## Python: Tips of the Day

Given each iterable to construct a tuple by adding an index:

```>>> a = ['Hello', 'world', '!']
>>> list(enumerate(a))
[(0, 'Hello'), (1, 'world'), (2, '!')]
```
