**Name**- Hypot -- calculate the hypotenuse (V5.0)
**Synopsis**-
h = Hypot(x, y)

**Function**-
This function can be used to calculate the hypotenuse of a right triangle. You
have to pass the length of the two sides in
`x`

and`y`

. A call to`Hypot()`

is the same as the square root of x*x + y*y. **Inputs**-
*x*- length of triangle side
*y*- length of triangle side
