Question details

This is an example of a function where, (in the function) you read in 3 numbers, do a calculation, and return a value

Write a C function that will:

  1. Determine if you have entered a right triangle
  2. Accept 3 ints (in main)
    1. Length of side one of the triangle
    2. Length of side two of the triangle
    3. Length of side three of the triangle
  3. returns a bool (true or false) whether the 3 lengths entered determines a right triangle
  4. the function does not print out the answer, just returns the answer
  5. answer is printed in main
  6. the three sides of the triangle are printed in the function
  7. the length of the sides are not input in any particular order

function header should be

bool determineRightTri()

in the function

  1. ask for the length of one side of a triangle
  2. read in this length
  3. ask for the length of one the second side of a triangle
  4. read in this length
  5. ask for the length of one the third side of a triangle
  6. read in this length
  7. determine whether this is a right triangle
  8. return true if you have a right triangle, else false

Output should look like the following

??? length of side 1

??? length of side 2

??? length of side 3

is a right triangle

            Or

is not a right triangle

these lines are printed in the function

??? length of side 1

??? length of side 2

??? length of side 3

this is printed in main--using the returned Boolean value

is a right triangle

       Or

is not a right triangle

Use the output (cout) manipulators to format the output correctly [setw(?), fixed, right, left, etc]
