The Pythagorean theorem states that the sum of the squares of the sides
of a right triangle is equal to the square of the hypotenuse. For example,
if two sides of a right triangle have lengths 3 and 4, then the hypotenuse
must have a length of 5. The integers 3, 4, and 5 together form a
Pythagorean triple. There is an infinite number of such triples. Given two positive integers, m and n, where m> n, a Pythagorean triple can be
generated by the following formulas:
side = m2 - n2
side2 = 2mn
hypotenuse = square root (side 1^2 + side 2 ^2)

write a c++ program that reads in values of m and n and prints the values of the Pythagorean. Also, make the program accommodate when m is less than n
What have you done to solve this yourself?

sorry forgot to ask the question: how an I accommodate that m is less than n should I display an error message?

No, just swap their values. :O)

Do you think he means so or just an error message?
"Accommodate" implies handling the issue, not simply recognizing it before failing.

ok thank you and sorry if my question is weird I am fairly new to problem-solving with C++
