ok ok ok ok

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...

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

I didnt beg, i just asked.... its sorta for school, i got another assignment but this one i find more difficult, and besides somone already added my msn when i needed help.

thanks guys

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

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...

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

Im not going offline, im just saying i need some help quickly becuase i have to leave soon and threw msn aim or xfire would be the quickest thats all

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

How would that be quicker than here with many more people to help???

7. ## 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.

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

yea.... i deffiatly think it would be quicker threw msn or xfire or AIm

9. ## 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

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

Simple Trig question...

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

i am brand new to this, its not simple to me, i just started VB. its very difficult to me

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

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

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

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...

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

yea but i dont kno the codes and stuff... like the formulas

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

actually im so retarded i cant even get the code you gave me to work ><

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

Then post what you have and someone will help you with that...

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

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

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

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

Are you using VB.NET?

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

Im using Visual Basics 2005 express edition.. if that helps.... did my code thing work, or do i need to fix it?

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

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)

21. ## 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.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")
Console.WriteLine("Please enter a Value for Side 2")
Console.WriteLine("Please enter a Value for Side 3")
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.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Cyan
Loop

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

It's not complete. There is no end to your Do loop.

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

Oh, oops it was there but i didnt copy it all.... is it perfect with is now?? (i hav the loop)

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

Don't see it... It's the same as before.

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

There. now how is it?

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

Looks good, did you run it?

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

Yea, problem is it only says " Congradulations, That is a Successful Triangle!"

it never says it failed... i thingk somthing is wrong

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

What numbers are you using?

Try 5, 7, 5

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

Its still saying successful triangle... i cant get a fail triangle...

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

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

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

how do i step threw the debugger?

and could you try my code on your computer with your numbers??

thanks

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

I don't currently have VB.NET installed on my computer...

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

could you quickly install the trial from microsoft?

i just dont have any clue on how this is not working

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

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

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

dam... ok thanks for your input...

Mods please move this i guess then, thanks

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

You should probably PM a mod to get their attention...

37. ## 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.

thanks for the help, but i dont understand, im trying everything i can do

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

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.
