I am asked to write a program that asks the user to enter the 2 lengths of a right triangle and make the user guess the length of the hypotenuse. Then the program has to calculate the hypotenuse, and ask the user again for four times in a row. If the user fails to get it right in four chances than the program should exit. This is what I tried: var l1,l2,hyp:int put"Enter the lengths of 2 sides of a right angle:" get l1,l2 put l1,l2 hyp:=sqrt((l1**2)+(l2**2)) put "Enter the estimated value of the hypotenuse:" get hyp after this I am stuck, does anyone know how to continue?[/list]

well for staters you can not uses var hyp 2 times like that. The value of hyp is being replaced with the users input. what you whont is an if stament like this:

How come this doesn't work? hyp:=sqrt(l1**2)+(l2**2) How do you use sqrt?[/code]
