### Right Angle Hypotenuse Calculator

I created this simple script to read a file containing two numbers, and calculate the hypotenuse of a right angle triangle.

Code: Select all
`##open and read the file, then split both integersf = open ('rosalind_ini2 (1).txt', "rt") line =f.read()values = line.split()##store both integers and calculate hypotenuse. x1 = int(values[0])x2 = int(values[1])hyp = x1**2 + x2**2print hyp**1/2`

Not nearly enough people seem to know about math.hypot.
Code: Select all
`>>> import math>>> math.hypot(5,7)8.602325267042627>>> `

### Re: Right Angle Hypotenuse Calculator

To be frank I am not at all well versed in python - for me I am going through this forum to learn and share what I've learned. Regardless, good code.
