## Pythagorean Theorem

· “C” is the longest side

· Side opposite to the right angle

· Only works with right angle triangles

· Formula for Pythagorean Theorem is “A2 + B2 =C2”

## Example

__Ex.__ a2 + b2 = c2

=(5)2 + (6)2

=25 + 36

=61 ß square root is

c2=7.8

## Example 2

__Ex.__ a2 + b2 = c2

(2)2 + b2 + (6)2

=4 + b2 = 36

b2 = 36 – 4

b2 = 32 ß square root is

b = 5.6
