    Program Error has me stuck

    I'm a beginner with C++ and am writing a program that calculates whether a triangle is right, valid or invalid. On the coding for a right triangle i'm struggling( i figured this would be the easy part) If someone could help with this portion it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

    Code:
     int main()
    {
        int a, b, c;
        cout << "Please input three values for leg lengths: ";
        cin >> a >> b >> c;
        cin.ignore();
        if ( a + b > c) {
            cout << "That is not a valid triangle." << endl;
        }
        else if ( a*a + b*b = c*c) {
            cout << "That's a right triangle." << endl;
        }
        cin.get();
    }
    Error occurs in the else if statement saying non-1value in assignment?

    Again thanks in advance for any and all help!

    Change "=" to "==".
    "=" is assignment, "==" is comparison.
