Right Angle Hypotenuse Calculator

Postby workhorse » Fri Jan 31, 2014 6:36 pm

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 integers
f = 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**2
print hyp**1/2

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

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.
