Python: Get the third side of right angled triangle from two given sides

Python Basic - 1: Exercise-16 with Solution

Write a Python program to get the third side of right angled triangle from two given sides.

Note: Use bitwise operations to add two numbers.

Pictorial Presentation:

Python: Get the third side of right angled triangle from two given sides

Sample Solution:

Python Code:

def pythagoras(opposite_side,adjacent_side,hypotenuse):
        if opposite_side == str("x"):
            return ("Opposite = " + str(((hypotenuse**2) - (adjacent_side**2))**0.5))
        elif adjacent_side == str("x"):
            return ("Adjacent = " + str(((hypotenuse**2) - (opposite_side**2))**0.5))
        elif hypotenuse == str("x"):
            return ("Hypotenuse = " + str(((opposite_side**2) + (adjacent_side**2))**0.5))
        else:
            return "You know the answer!"
    
print(pythagoras(3,4,'x'))
print(pythagoras(3,'x',5))
print(pythagoras('x',4,5))
print(pythagoras(3,4,5))

Sample Output:

Hypotenuse = 5.0
Adjacent = 4.0
Opposite = 3.0
You know the answer!
