All about the Pythagorean Theorem

Here is an example: 32+42=52 =9+16=25.It's pretty cool.

The Pythagorean Theorem is if you take a right triangle and make squares on the sides, the areas of the squares that are not the hypotenuse equal the hypotenuse.

This can be written down as an equation like this: a2+b2=c2(with "c" being the hypotenuse.)

Here is a video on proof of the theorem: click here

Words to know:Hypotenuse-the side of a right triangle oppisite the right angle

Pythagoras wasn't the first person to know about the theorem. It was known by Indian, Greek, Chinese and Babylonian mathematicians before he lived.

You can also use it to find out if a triangle is right-angled! Here is an example of that:5x5=25+12x12=144
