Calculate the length of the short side, a, of a right-angled triangle with hypotenuse of length c, and other short side of length b.

Tanya, you like triangles.
a = sqrt(c^2-b^2);
test_1 a=sqrt(3) is longer than b=1
the good solution would be
a= min(sqrt(c^2 -b^2),b)
Kudos for finding this solution - it did indeed meet all the test cases, but wasn't quite what I had in mind! I will add a new test.
