Hey guys

I am trying an exercise in a book I found at the library and it asks me to write a program that reads three values and determines if they could make a right sided triangle.

I have made a fairly good attempt but I think my algorithm is a bit muddled. Can

you help me out.

The code below compiles ok.

Code:#include <iostream> #include <cmath> // main function - driver ////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // int main ( void ) { double hypotenuse = 0, sideA = 0, sideB = 0, squSideA = 0, squSideB = 0, totalSqu = 0; std::cout << "Enter the hypotenuse: "; std::cin >> hypotenuse; std::cout << "Enter the sizes of the other two sides: "; std::cin >> sideA >> sideB; // find the square of each side squSideA = sqrt ( sideA ); squSideB = sqrt ( sideB ); // get the total square of both sides totalSqu = squSideA + squSideB; if ( totalSqu == hypotenuse ) { std::cout << "\nThis could represent a right-sided triangle\n"; } else { std::cout << "\nThis could not represent a right-sided triangle\n"; } std::cin.get(); // freeze console output window std::cin.ignore(); return 0; // return value from int main }
