Newton's hypothesis included the 3 laws of motion.

The first law states that:

Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it.

His 2nd law states that:

The relationship between an object's mass *m*, its
acceleration **a**, and the applied force **F** is given by
**F** = m**a**. Acceleration and force are vectors (as
indicated by their symbols being displayed in bold font); in this
law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction
of the acceleration vector.

His 3rd law states that:

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

### Why do you formulate hypothesis?

A hypothesis is a guess about the outcome of an experiment due
to research. You basically say, "I think the substance will
dissolve when I add water to it," then test your theory out.
Answer
it is simple,hypothesis is a suggested solution or explanation to a
problem or a phenomenon. so u will just write what u think is the
solution to that problem. for example is a newtons law .it was
first a hypothesis and when it accepted it became a law
Addendum
A hypothesis does not graduate into a law. A hypothesis explains
something, a law describes basic behavior.
The law of gravitation is the description of the behavior - the
theory of gravitation is the explaination for why things fall
down.
They are related, but not the same thing.
