Check whether right angled triangle is valid or not for large sides in Python

Suppose we have three sides in a list. We have to check whether these three sides are forming a right angled triangle or not.

So, if the input is like sides = [8, 10, 6], then the output will be True as (8^2 + 6^2) = 10^2.

To solve this, we will follow these steps −

  • sort the list sides
  • if (sides[0]^2 + sides[1]^2) is same as sides[2]^2, then
    • return True
  • return False

Let us see the following implementation to get better understanding −

def solve(sides):
   if (sides[0]*sides[0]) + (sides[1]*sides[1]) == (sides[2]*sides[2]):
      return True
   return False
sides = [8, 10, 6]


[8, 10, 6]
