    Begging does not help... And besides no one in their right mind is going to give you unchecked access to them in MSN. Especially since you don't know that you shouldn't leave your email address in posts...

    It would help if you have a proper thread title to describe your problem not to plead for help. The forum is for people to help already...

    Well, that someone that added MSN has to be about 16...

    Why would you come to a forum to ask for help then go offline??? The situations and help here are for others as well...

    Re: I need a little bit of help. Please look here

    ok here is the question.


    A right-angled triangle has the property that when the values of the lengths of the sides are
    squared, the sum of the two smaller values is equal to the larger value. For example, 12, 5, and 13
    make a right angled triangle, because 12 * 12 = 144, 5 * 5 = 25, 13 * 13 = 169, and 144 + 25 =
    169.
    Write a program that asks the user to enter three values and then determines whether the triangle
    created is a right-triangle or not.

    Re: I need a little bit of help. Please look here

    Just make some checks, Somthing like

    Code:
    text1.text = Side1
    text2.text = Side2
    Text3.text = Side3
    
    If (Side1 * Side1) + (Side2 * Side2) = (Side3 * Side3) then
    msgbox "right triangle"
    else
    msg "Not a right triangle"
    end if

    Thats super basic man you should try thinking about it next time

    you dont have to know VB....its math :\ you pretty much answered your own question when you asked it. Im sure they taught you how to do if statements and thats all you need. Just dont use the forums to pass class and youll do fine lol

    Trigonometry has nothing to do with VB. VB is just a way to show it.

    That is why you should ask the question here to see who can help... You might be surprised by who can help write a VB program in A VB Forum...

    ok here is what i have, tell me if this is correct.


    Dim side1 As Double
    Dim side2 As Double
    Dim side3 As Double
    Console.WriteLine("Please enter a Value for side 1.")
    side1 = Console.ReadLine
    Console.WriteLine("Please enter a value for side 2.")
    side2 = Console.ReadLine
    Console.WriteLine("Please enter a Value for side 3.")
    side3 = Console.ReadLine
    If (side1 * side1) + (side2 * side2) = side3 Then
    Console.WriteLine("right triangle")
    Else
    Console.WriteLine("Not a right triangle")

    You will also need to learn forum code tag usage...

    Are you using VB.NET?

    Well, this is the wrong forum... but anyway you did not copy the formula exactly
    It should be:
    Code:
    (Side1 * Side1) + (Side2 * Side2) = (Side3 * Side3)

    Re: I need a little bit of help. Please look here

    O ok, thanks for the help guys. also i got another question....i did this one all by myself earlier....

    here is the question....

    Three numbers represent the sides of a triangle, when the sum of any two sides is greater than the
    third side. For example, 3, 4, and 5 are the sides of a triangle because the sum of any pair of sides
    is bigger than the third side. But 12, 3, and 8 are not sides of a traingle because 3 + 8 = 11 is not
    greater than 12.
    Write a program to have the user enter three lengths of sides and determine whether the figure is a
    triangle or not.

    --------------------------------------------------

    Heres what i got, im not sure if it is correct though :S

    Code:
           
            Console.BackgroundColor = ConsoleColor.Green
            Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.DarkRed
            Console.Clear()
            Console.WriteLine("The Purpose of this program to have the user enter three lengths of sides and determine whether the figure is a triangle or not. Please press Enter to start the Program.")
            Console.ReadLine()
            Console.BackgroundColor = ConsoleColor.Blue
            Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Cyan
            Console.Clear() 'Clears screen
            Console.Beep()
            Do
                Dim Side1 As Double 'This is the First side of the Triangle.
                Dim Side2 As Double 'This is the Second side of the Triangle.
                Dim Side3 As Double 'This is the Third side for the Triangle
                Console.Clear()
                Console.WriteLine("Please enter a Value for Side 1")
                Side1 = Console.ReadLine
                Console.WriteLine("Please enter a Value for Side 2")
                Side2 = Console.ReadLine
                Console.WriteLine("Please enter a Value for Side 3")
                Side3 = Console.ReadLine
                Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Yellow
                If Side1 + Side2 > Side3 Then Console.WriteLine("Congradulations, That is a Successful Triangle!")
                Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Red
                If Side1 + Side2 < Side3 Then Console.WriteLine("Sorry, That is not a Triangle!")
                Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Gray
                Console.WriteLine("Would you like to try again? Press enter and then Type in 3 lengths to determine if it is a Triangle or not")
                Console.ReadLine()
                Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Cyan
    Loop

    That is impossible with the numbers I gave you. Step thru the debugger to see where it fails...

    Have a mod move this thread to the .NET forum. You would have a larger .NET audience.

    Re: I need a little bit of help. Please look here

    You didn't test all possible combinations of the test. You just tested one equation and went on with congratulating the user. If the user assigned the lengths differently then your test will fail. Pseudo code follows

    If A + B <= C Then Failed
    If B + C <= A Then Failed
    If A + C <= B Then Failed
    All Tests passed Then Success

    It's simple logic and has nothing to do with the programming language. Before you can write code you need to analyze... the task given to you was an exercise to that end. Always resorting to asking others to do it for you defeats the purpose of learning from experience.

    Not that I'm saying you should never ask questions, rather try to also learn debugging skills while you still have time to do so.

    Maintain a boolean variable initially set to true, set it to false when a test fails. After the three tests have been conducted, check if the boolean is still true. If it is then success you have a triangle, inform the user. Else inform the user that it is not a triangle.
