Pythagorean Relationship

1. Explain what the pythagorean relationship.
a2+b2=c2
a2+b2 = c2 because the 2 legs are smaller than the hypotenuse and for it to equal c2, you have to square a2 and b2 and square root it after to get the hypotenuse(c2).

2.c2=a2+b2
c2=122+5cm2
c2=(12x12)+(5x5)
c2=144+25
c2=169cm2
square root 169= 13cm

3.Is this a right triangle?

a2+b2=c2
82+62=112
(8x8)+(6x6)=(11x11)
64+36 does not equal 121
So It is not a right triangle.
