Python Question

I have generated a random point named

`y0=(a,b)`

`(x,y)`

`y0`

note: by 10 steps apart from the firt point I don't mean the Euclidean distance. I mean the number of steps on lattice between the two point (a,b) and (x,y) which is given by |x-a|+|y-b|=10

My attempt(sometimes gives wrong result).

`import random`

y0=(random.randint(0,50),random.randint(0,50))# here I generated the first point.

y=random.randint(0,50)

# I used the formula |x-a|+|y-b|=10.

x=(10 -abs(y-y0[1]))+y0[0] or x=-(10 -abs(y-y0[1]))+y0[0]

x0=(x,y)

Answer Source

this code generate a random point xy-plane named y0 then generate another point x0 10 steps apart from y0 in taxi distance .

------- begining of the code-------- import random y0=(random.randint(0,50),random.randint(0,50))

```
while True:
y=random.randint(0,50)
x=(10 -abs(y-y0[1]))+y0[0]
if (abs(x-y0[0])+abs(y-y0[1]))==10:
x0=(x,y)
break
```
