In this challenge we will create a **library of functions** to apply the different formulas based on the geometry of triangles.

For each function, you will need to design the algorithm using either Pseudo-code or a flowchart, implement the function using the Python trinket provided below and use another algorithm to test your function.

**function**called

**that takes**

*getPerimeter()***three parameters/arguments**

*a, b, c*(the length of each side of a triangle).

Your function should **calculate and return the perimeter of this triangle**.

Write an algorithm to test your function.

Your algorithm should:

- Ask the user to enter the length of the 3 sides of a triangle,
- Use the
*getPerimeter()*function to retrieve the perimeter of the triangle, - Display the perimeter of the triangle

**function**called

**that takes**

*getArea()***two parameters/arguments**corresponding to the length of the

*base*and of the

*height*of a triangle.

Your function should **calculate and return the area of this triangle**.

Write an algorithm to test your function.

Your algorithm should:

- Ask the user to enter the length of the base and height of a triangle,
- Use the
*getArea()*function to retrieve the area of the triangle, - Display the area of the triangle

**function**called

**that takes**

*getAngle()***two parameters/arguments**called

*angle1*and

*angle2*(the value of two angles in degrees)

Your function should calculate and **return the value of the third angle**: (180 – angle1 – angle2)

Write an algorithm to test your function.

Your algorithm should:

- Ask the user to enter the value of two angles in degrees,
- Use the
*getAngle()*function to retrieve the value of the third angle, - Display this value on screen.

**function**called

**that takes**

*isEquilateral()***three parameters**

*a, b, c*(the length of each side of a triangle).

Your function should workout if the triangle is equilateral (if all sides have the same length) and **return a Boolean value (True or False)** based on its finding.

Write an algorithm to test your function.

Your algorithm should:

- Ask the user to enter the length of the 3 sides of a triangle,
- Use the
*isEquilateral()*function to find out if the triangle is an equilateral triangle, - Display a relevant message to the end user.

**function**called

**that takes**

*isIsoscles()***three parameters**

*a, b, c*(the length of each side of a triangle).

Your function should workout if the triangle is an isosceles triangle (if any two sides have the same length) and **return a Boolean value (True or False)** based on its finding.

Write an algorithm to test your function.

Your algorithm should:

- Ask the user to enter the length of the 3 sides of a triangle,
- Use the
*isIsoscles()*function to find out if the triangle is an isosceles triangle, - Display a relevant message to the end user.

**function**called

**that**

*getHypotenuse()***takes two parameters/arguments**called

*a*and

*b*(the length of two sides of a right-angled triangle).

Your function should calculate and return the length of the third side (the hypotenuse) of the triangle knowing that:

Write an algorithm to test your function. Your algorithm should:

- Ask the user to enter the length of the 2 sides of a right-angled triangle,
- Use the
*getyHypotenuse()*function to retrieve the value of the hypotenuse of the right–angled triangle, - Display the value of the Hypotenuse.

Write a **function** called ** isRightAngledTriangle()**, that takes three parameters

*a, b*and

*c*and works out if the triangle is a right-angled triangle or not. Your function should

**return a Boolean value (True or False)**based on its finding.

Write an algorithm to test your function. Your algorithm should:

- Ask the user to enter the length of the 3 sides of a triangle,
- Use the
*isRightAngledTriangle()*function to find out if the triangle is a right-angled trinagle, - Display a relevant message to the end-user.

Write a

**function**called

**that**

*getTriangleArea()***takes three parameters/arguments**

*a, b, c*(the length of each side of a triangle).

Your function will apply Heron’s formula to calculate and **return the area of the triangle**.

Write an algorithm to test your function.

Your algorithm should:

- Ask the user to enter the length of the 3 sides of a triangle,
- Use the
*getTriangleArea()*function to retrieve the area of the triangle, - Display the area of the triangle
