Side length of a right triangle

Calculates the side length of a right triangle from two other sides using Pythagorean theorem. Created by user's request

One of our users asked why we do not have calculator on Pythagorean theorem.
Indeed, we've already have plenty calculators about triangles but none about right triangle. Well, may be because of it's simplicity. Anyway, if someone lazy to calculate by yourself - here it is.

PLANETCALC, Side length of a right triangle

Side length of a right triangle

Digits after the decimal point: 2
Side length
 

If selected value is "two legs", then hypotenuse is
c=\sqrt{a^2+b^2}
If selected value is "leg and hypotenuse, then remained leg is
a=\sqrt{c^2-b^2}

P.S. Wikipedia says there are 367 ways to prove Pythagorean theorem.
