My code runs, but what is the point of adding a class Equilateral? How can you make the code print "I am a Equilateral" thanks class Triangle(object): def __init__(self, angle1, angle2, angle3): self.angle1 = angle1 self.angle2 = angle2 self.angle3 = angle3 number_of_sides = 3 def check_angles(self): #sum_a = angle1 + angle2 + angle3 if self.angle1 + self.angle2 + self.angle3 == 180: print "triangle" return True else: print "no triangle" return False class Equilateral(Triangle): angle = 60 def __init__(self): self.angle1 = self.angle self.angle2 = self.angle self.angle3 = self.angle def display_message(self): print "I am a Equilateral" my_triangle = Triangle(80,60,60) print my_triangle.number_of_sides print my_triangle.check_angles()
@cssmaster55309: Well ... there isn't really a need to use inheritance in this example, not a really good one but better than nothing.
The purpose of this exercise is just to show how inheritance works, syntactically speaking.
You'll need to create an instance of the Equilateral class in order to use this method.
The class Triangle can't see what their children have as methods, so you wouldn't be able to access display_message() with a Triangle object.
Hope that helps, if not, let me know
Thank you, I like to double check that I on the right way.
