CS 159 – HW #01 5 Points Possible Due: January 24, 2011 at 11:00pm. Background (From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagorean_triple ): A Pythagorean triple consists of three positive integers a , b , and c , such that a 2 + b 2 = c 2 . Such a triple is commonly written ( a , b , c ), and a well-known example is (3, 4, 5). Euclid's formula is a fundamental formula for generating Pythagorean triples given an arbitrary pair of positive integers m and n with m > n . The formula states that the integers below form a Pythagorean triple. Problem: Given the two integer values described above as m and n input, calculate the lengths of side #1 (a), side #2 (b), and the hypotenuse (c). Both inputs will be positive integer values. You may assume that the second integer will be less than the first. You are permitted to use mathematical function for power if desired. Example Execution #1: Enter the first positive integer value: 3 Enter the second positive integer value (less than 3): 1 The Pythagorean triple given positive integers [3 and 1]:
