C++ Vector hypot()
This function finds the square root of the sum of the squares of two numbers. It stands for hypotenuse, is used to find the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle.
Consider three numbers x,y and z :
hypotenuse of a right angle triangle = √x2+y2 distance from origin in 3d space=√x2+y2+z2
Syntax for a right angle triangle would be:
Syntax for 3d space would be:
Note: If any argument is of long double type, then the return type is promoted to long double. If not, then the return type is promoted to double.
(x,y,z): x,y and z are the values of float or integer type.
It returns the cube root of the sum of the squares of two numbers.
Let's see a simple example.
sides of a right angled triangle are :2,3 third side of a triangle is :3.60555
