Java.lang.Math.hypot() Method

Description

The java.lang.Math.hypot(double x, double y) returns sqrt(x2 +y2) without intermediate overflow or underflow. Special cases:

• If either argument is infinite, then the result is positive infinity.

• If either argument is NaN and neither argument is infinite, then the result is NaN.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.Math.hypot() method

```public static double hypot(double x, double y)
```

• x − a value

• y − a value

Return Value

This method returns sqrt(x2 +y2) without intermediate overflow or underflow

NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of lang.Math.hypot() method.

```package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class MathDemo {

public static void main(String[] args) {

// get two double numbers
double x = 60984.1;
double y = -497.99;

// call hypot and print the result
System.out.println("Math.hypot(" + x + "," + y + ")=" + Math.hypot(x, y));
}
}
```

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result −

```Math.hypot(60984.1, -497.99)=60986.133234122164
```
