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!

Python: Tips of the Day

Merges two or more lists into a list of lists, combining elements from each of the input lists based on their positions

Example:

def tips_merge(*args, fill_value=None):
  max_length = max([len(lst) for lst in args])
  result = []
  for i in range(max_length):
    result.append([
      args[k][i] if i < len(args[k])
	  else fill_value for k in range(len(args))
    ])
  return result
print(tips_merge(['x', 'y'], [1, 2], [True, False])) 
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False])) 
print(tips_merge(['x'], [1, 2], [True, False], fill_value = '_')) 

Output:

[['x', 1, True], ['y', 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], [None, 2, False]]
[['x', 1, True], ['_', 2, False]]
