Program: How to calculate the length of hypotenuse in java?


In geometry, a hypotenuse is the longest side of a right-angled triangle, the side opposite the right angle. The length of the hypotenuse of a right triangle can be found using the Pythagorean theorem, which states that the square of the length of the hypotenuse equals the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides.

package com.java2novice.math;

public class MyHypotEx {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		int x = 10;
		int y = 20;
		System.out.println("The length of hypotenuse is: "+Math.hypot(x, y));

The length of hypotenuse is: 22.360679774997898
