The _HYPOT function returns the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle whose legs are x and y.


result! = _HYPOT(x, y)


  • x and y are the floating point values corresponding to the legs of a right-angled (90 degree) triangle for which the hypotenuse is computed.


  • The function returns what would be the square root of the sum of the squares of x and y (as per the Pythagorean theorem).
  • The hypotenuse is the longest side between the two 90 degree angle sides



DIM leg_x AS DOUBLE, leg_y AS DOUBLE, result AS DOUBLE leg_x = 3 leg_y = 4 result = _HYPOT(leg_x, leg_y) PRINT USING "## , ## and ## form a right-angled triangle."; leg_x; leg_y; result

3 , 4 and 5 form a right-angled triangle.
