In this example, you learn how to compute exponentials and square roots on your numeric data.

Functions:


Source:

The dataset below contains values for x and y:

 

XY
34
49
810
3040

Transformation:

You can use the following transformation to generate values for z2

NOTE: Do not add this step to your recipe right now.

You can see how column Z is generated as the sum of squares of the other two columns, which yields z2.

Now, edit the transformation to wrap the value computation in a SQRT function. This step is done to compute the value for z, which is the distance between the two points based on the Pythagorean theorem.
