    What exactly are you having trouble with? Post your questions (along with your code) here...
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    k1^2 + k2^2 = h^2

    Abrege's 3 Day Introductory Guide to Handling the Pythagoras theorm!

    1. Find the squares of the two sides
    2. Add them together
    3. Use the sqrt() function in math.h to find the square root of sum
    I am against the teaching of evolution in schools. I am also against widespread
    literacy and the refrigeration of food.

    or to put what Magos said simpler, a^2 + b^2 = c^2

    Note that ^ is in C++ not the operator for power.

    use the pow() function in math.h

    pow(x, y) calculates the value of x raised to the yth power
    i.e

    length = sqrt(pow(x1 - x2, 2) + pow(y1 - y2, 2) );
