# Find other two sides and angles of a right angle triangle

Given one side of right angle triangle, check if there exists a right angle triangle possible with any other two sides of the triangle. If possible print length of the other two sides and all the angles of the triangle.

Examples:

Input : a = 12
Output : Sides are a = 12, b = 35, c = 37
Angles are A = 18.9246, B = 71.0754, C = 90
Explanation: a = 12, b = 35 and c = 37 form right
angle triangle because
12*12 + 35*35 = 37*37

Input : a = 6
Output : Sides are a = 6, b = 8, c = 10
Angles are A = 36.8699, B = 53.1301, C = 90

## Recommended: Please try your approach on {IDE} first, before moving on to the solution.

Approach to check if triangle exists and finding Sides:
To solve this problem we first observe the Pythagoras equation. If a and b are the lengths of the legs of a right triangle and c is the length of the hypotenuse, then the sum of the squares of the lengths of the legs is equal to the square of the length of the hypotenuse.
This relationship is represented by the formula:

a*a + b*b = c*c


Case 1: a is an odd number: Given a, find b and c

c2 - b2 = a2
OR
c = (a2 + 1)/2;
b = (a2 - 1)/2;


Above solution works only for case when a is odd, because a2 + 1 is divisible by 2 only for odd a.

Case 2 : a is an even number: When c-b is 2 & c+b is (a2)/2

c-b = 2 & c+b = (a2)/2
Hence,
c = (a2)/4 + 1;
b = (a2)/4 - 1;


This works when a is even.

Approach to find Angles:
First find all sides of triangle. Then Applied “SSS” rule that’s means law of cosine:

Below is the implementation of the above approach:

## C++
