Sample text

For the isosceles, we could have written faulty code that only needed to look at two of the sides to make this decision, which would pass if we had only one test case, we needed to write more. For a non-triangle, we could check this by adding up all pairs of sides and making sure their sum is greater than the remaining side. To be on the safe side, yes, let’s add these tests into what we have so far, since it’s possible in our pseudocode we might forget to do this for one side. side 1 side 2 side 3 Result (type of triangle) 3 3 3 equilateral 6 4 4 isosceles 4 6 4 isosceles 4 4 6 isosceles 3 4 5 scalene 1 2 3 invalid 1 3 2 invalid 3 1 2 invalid Here, each sum of pair of sides is tested to be less than the remaining side.

For our purposes, we’re going to only focus on the most basic functionality of a computer, as even the more complex components (like the operating system, wireless connection, printers, touch screens, and Instagram filters for the sixteen photos of the salad someone had for lunch) are simply amalgamations of these basic concepts. Recall that a program is used to communicate between a user and a computer. For example, a user may want a computer to add the numbers 2 and 3 together. The computer knows how to add two numbers, but it alone does not know where to get these numbers, or what to do with their sum.

You have access to these stored values, as long as you call them w and h. Write a program to return: a. The row number of a tile number given by the user. Hint: use integer division, //, which returns only a whole number and truncates any remainder. (For example, 7//5 returns 1, because 5 fits into 7 one time). b. The column number of a tile given by the user c. Change your answer to part a such that instead of having rows starting at number 1 and going up to the height of the grid, they start at number 0 and go up to the height of the grid minus 1.
