## Question

int side1, side2, side3;

The class Triangle must include the following constructors and methods: (If your class does not contain any of the following methods, points will be deducted).

• public Triangle (int s1, int s2, int s3) - Sets up a triangle with the specified side lengths.

• private int largest() - Returns the length of the longest side of the triangle. This is a helper method.

• private int shortest() Returns the length of the shortest side of the triangle. This is a helper method.

• public boolean is_equilateral() - Determines whether a triangle is equilateral. If the longest side is equal to the shortest side, then the triangle is equilateral.

• public boolean is_isosceles() - Determines whether a triangle is isosceles. Any (and at least) two sides must be equal.

• public boolean is_scalene() - Determines whether a triangle is scalene. No two sides are equal.

• public String toString() - Prints the sides of the triangle.

Save the Triangle class in a file called Triangle.java and use the following program stored in Assignment4.java which has the main method to create a new Triangle object and to test what kind of Triangle it is. A sample output is shown below.

Important

Your class should have exactly the method headers that are described or otherwise your class will not work with the test driver program (Assignment4.java) that is provided. You should never change the test driver program if the test driver is provided but instead make changes to Triangle class to make it work.

Helpful Hints

• Work on it in steps - write one method, test it with a test driver and make sure it works before going on to the next method.

• Always make sure your code compiles before you add another method.

• Your methods should be able to be called in any order.

Triangle equal = new Triangle (6, 6, 6); //example of equilateral (and isosceles) triangle

Triangle isosceles = new Triangle (3, 7, 7); // example of isosceles triangle

Triangle scalene = new Triangle (4, 5, 6); // example of scalene triangle

Sample Outputs

Sample 1:

Enter the sides of the triangle: 345

3 4 5 triangle:

It is not isosceles

It is not a equilateral

It is scalene

Check another Triangle (y/n)? y Enter the sides of the triangle: 456

4 5 6 triangle:

It is not isosceles

It is not a equilateral It is scalene

Check another Triangle (y/n)? y Enter the sides of the triangle: 444

4 4 4 triangle: It is isosceles

It is equilateral It is not scalene

Check another Triangle (y/n)? y Enter the sides of the triangle: 377

3 7 7 triangle:

It is isosceles

It is not a equilateral It is not scalene

Check another Triangle (y/n)? n Press any key to continue . . .

Submission

• Go to the course web site (my.asu.edu), and then click on the on-line Submission tab.

• Submit your Assignment4.java file on-line. Make sure to choose Hw4 from drop-down box. • Assignment4.java should have the following, in order:

– In comments, the assignment header.

– The working Java code requested in Part #2.

– The Assignment4.java file must compile and run as you submit it.
