The Pythagorean Theorem

The Pythagorean Theorem computes the hypotenuse of a right triangle using the following relationship between the legs and the hypotenuse of a triangle:

The hypotenuse [c] equals the square root of the sum of the squares of each leg of the triangle [a and b].

Example:

This is the computed distance in miles.
