C# Application for calculating a hypotenuse

Develop a C# console application that computes the hypotenuse of a right triangle. The computation of the hypotenuse of a right triangle is based on the Pythagorean Theorem: c2 = a2 + b2 and the hypotenuse, c ("long side") of the triangle can be computed with the formula the hypotenuse is equal to the square root of the side a squared plus side b squared.
The application should take as many side pairs inputs as the user desires and calculate each until the user enters a zero for both side one and side two (sentinel loop). You should use at least two (2) Math class methods.
The output should look something like this:
enter length of first side: 3

enter length of second side: 4

The hypotenuse is 5

enter length of first side: 3.44

enter length of second side: 4.88

The hypotenuse is 5.97059461025449

enter length of first side: 10.55

enter length of second side: 33.0

The hypotenuse is 34.6453820876607

enter length of first side: 0

enter length of second side: 0

Press any key to continue . . .
Note in the first example with the entries of 3 and 4 that the hypotenuse is computed as 5. If you are not getting that answer (The hypotenuse is 5) with entries of 3 and 4 respectively, then you are not taking the inputs and converting them correctly. Remember that a ReadLine brings in characters but there are differences in how the conversion methods for character and string values work. There is another way to convert a string number input to a numeric value type. You may have to do some research to come up with the right conversion method. Also note that type double values are used.
