function
Library: Trigonometry (OMTRIG)
Import : omtrig.xmd |
Returns: the hypotenuse |
define external float function hypot (value float x, value float y)
Use hypot to calculate the hypotenuse of a right triangle. This trigonometric function works the same way as its equivalent in the C math library.
The following example shows how to use the hypot
function to make the calculation. The result is 7.07.
import "omtrig.xmd" unprefixed import "omfloat.xmd" unprefixed process local float x local float y local float result set x to "5" set y to "5" set result to hypot(x,y) output "When the opposite side is " || "d" % x || " and the adjacent side is " || "d" % y || ",%n" || "the hypotenuse is " || "d" % result || "%n" ; Output: "When the opposite side is 5 and the adjacent side is 5, ; the hypotenuse is 7.071067811865476"
