**HYPOTENUSE(A,B)**

- is the value of the opposite side.
- is the adjacent side value.
- HYPOTENUSE(),returns the hypotenuse side

## Description

- This function gives the value of the hypotenuse side.
- A hypotenuse is the longest side of a right-angled triangle.
- 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.
- In , and are the lengths of the other two sides of a right angled triangle.
- is the value of the opposite side and is the value of the adjacent side.
- So .

This function will return the result as error when any one of the argument is non-numeric.

## Examples

- =HYPOTENUSE(6,8) = 10
- =HYPOTENUSE(1,0) = 1
- =HYPOTENUSE(2.5,6.2) = 6.68505796534
- =HYPOTENUSE(12,20) = 23.32350787
- =HYPOTENUSE(-2,4) = 4.472135954999
- =HYPOTENUSE(-3,-4) = 5
