# Hypotenuse of a Right Triangle

## Recommended Posts

Super simple implementation of the Pythagorean Theorem in Autoit and in PHP.

Autoit:

```MsgBox(0, "Hypotenuse", "The hypotenuse of a trangle with side lengths of "&@CRLF&"3 and 4 are"&Hypotenuse(3, 4));

func Hypotenuse(\$a, \$b)
\$c = \$a*\$a+\$b*\$b;
return sqrt(\$c);
endfunc```

Quick, Easy, Made it to cheat in math J/K

PHP:

```<?php
echo hypotenuse(\$_GET['a'], \$_GET['b']);
function hypotenuse(\$a, \$b)
{
\$c2 = \$a*\$a+\$b*\$b;
return sqrt(\$c2);
}
?>```

Example of PHP:

I love math.

func Hypotenuse(\$a, \$

return sqrt(\$a^2+\$b^2)

endfunc

I think it might take longer to type it then to actually do it on your own ;>

I was expecting some sort of fancy triangle solver like this:

I actually made a function for this on my graphing calculator... I don't do math much on the computer though..

Not when your teacher makes you write it out like this

A^2+B^2=C^2

3^2+4^2=C^2

9+16=c^2

C^2 = 25

Sqrt(25) = C

C=5

When i type Sqrt, I mean the _/-- symbol that I just don't have sitting on my keyboard

If we do it on a calculator or other means, we just have to give the answer.

If you need to cheat in math class you can also use this so you dont need to keep opening the.au3 files

\$a = InputBox(" Pythagrorean Thingy","Leg 1 = ???")

\$b = InputBox("Pythagrorean Thingy","Leg 2 = ???")

MsgBox(0,"Thing","If A= " & \$a & " And B= " & \$b & " Then the Hypotenuse is " & Hypotenuse(\$a, \$);

func Hypotenuse(\$a, \$

\$c = \$a*\$a+\$b*\$b;

return sqrt(\$c);

endfunc

`code`

Good but it would be easier to understand if you write the \$C = line as

\$c = (\$a*\$a)+(\$b*\$;

Or

\$c = (\$a^2)+(\$b^2);
