Program To Check whether a Triangle is Equilateral, Isosceles or Scalene

Given three integers as X, Y, and Z representing the three sides of a triangle, the task is to check whether the triangle formed by the given sides is equilateral, isosceles, or scalene.

Equilateral Triangle: A triangle is said to be equilateral triangle if all the sides are equal. If X, Y, Z are three sides of the triangle. Then, the triangle is equilateral only if X = Y = Z.

Isosceles Triangle: A triangle is said to be an isosceles triangle if any of its two sides are equal. If X, Y, Z are three sides of the triangle.Then, the triangle is isosceles if either X = Y or X = Z or Y = Z.

Scalene Triangle: A triangle is said Scalene Triangle if none of its sides is equal.

Examples:



Input: X = 6, Y = 8, Z = 10
Output: Scalene Triangle
Explanation:
Since all the sides of the given triangle are unequal, the triangle is scalene.

Input: X = 10, Y = 10, Z = 10
Output: Equilateral Triangle
Explanation:
Since all the sides of the given triangle are equal.

Approach: Follow the steps below to solve the problem:

  1. Check if X = Y and Y = Z. If found to be true, print “Equilateral Triangle”.
  2. If it is not an Equilateral triangle, then check if X = Y or X = Z or Y = Z. If found to be true, print “Isosceles Triangle”.
  3. If none of the above steps are satisfied, then print “Scalene Triangle”.

Below is the implementation of the above approach:
