Alyssa's Pythagorean Relationship Post

1. Explain the pythagorean relationship.

Pythagorean Relationship: a2 + b2 = c2

a2 - is one of the legsc2 - is the hypotenuse of a right triangle

2. Answer the missing side.
one leg equals = 12 which is A side
the other = 5
so we go c=a+b
c2=12+5
c2= (12x12) + (5x5)
c2= 144+25
c2=169( sqaure root it )
c=13
so the answer will be the c= 13 2

3.is the triangle a right triangle? prove it !!!
a or b = 8 

the other side (a or b) = 6
a2+b2=c2
8+6=14
14(2)=11(2)

the triangle is not a right triangle
b2 - is also one of the legs

Good job Alyssa! I like that you gave effort on your scribe post. I like that you change the colors. I suggest that you put pictures on your post because the answers and explanations are confusing. Also you could put a video and link. Over all good job!
