JavaScript - Math.hypot() Method



The JavaScript Math.hypot() method returns square root of sum of squares of two arguments, i.e., sqrt(x2 +y2).

Syntax

Math.hypot(x, y);

Parameters

x Specify a value.
y Specify a value.

Return Value

Returns sqrt(x2 +y2).

Example:

In the example below, Math.hypot() method is used to calculate sqrt(x2 +y2).

var txt;

txt = "Math.hypot(3, 4) = " + Math.hypot(3, 4) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.hypot(5, 12) = " + Math.hypot(5, 12) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.hypot(8, 15) = " + Math.hypot(8, 15) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.hypot(20, 15) = " + Math.hypot(20, 15) + "<br>";

The output (value of txt) after running above script will be:

Math.hypot(3, 4) = 5
Math.hypot(5, 12) = 13
Math.hypot(8, 15) = 17
Math.hypot(20, 15) = 25
