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
