Terence's Pythagoras Scribe Edit


1. Answer a short paragraph with diagrams.

Explain the Pythagorean Relationship.

The two legs which are A and B equal the hypotenuse which is C. The C may also equal A or B if you subtract. If you subtract C with A it may equal the B and

the same thing goes for C-B. If you do A+B=C, B=A-C, and A=B-C it will show if you have a right triangle and those are the formulas.

2. Solve the missing side length

A=12 cm
B=5 cm

A+B=C
(12x12)+(5x5)=
144+25=169
C=169cm2
C=13











3. Is this a right triangle? Prove it!!!

A=8 cm
B=6 cm
C=11 cm

A+B=C
(8x8)+(6x6)=(11x11)
64+36=(100) 121

It is not a right triangle because 64+36=100 not 121.
