# Length of longest rod that can fit into a cuboid

Given the length, breadth, and height of a cuboid, the task is to find the length of the longest rod that can fit in a cuboid.

Examples:

```Input: length = 12, breadth = 9, height = 8
Output: 17

Input: length = 22, breadth = 19, height = 8
Output: 30.1496
```

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution. Explanation: In the figure

`GH = length, GF = breadth, FB= height`

The length of the longest rod is BH. Therefore to compute BH we can apply Pythagoras Theorem in Triangle BHF. From triangle HGF we can compute the length of FH. After getting the length of FH we can find the length of BH using Pythagoras theorem in triangle BHF. Below is the implementation of the above approach:
