Pythagoream Theorem

Thursday, February 26, 2009

An "uber" smart mathematician. Pythagoras was a philosopher from Greek. They say that he was the greatest genius whoever lived. But they weren't sure if he actually existed because there was no trace of him being alive.

Triangle










Square






Pythagorean Theorem is the sum of the areas of the two
squares on the legs A & B which equals the area of the
square on the hypotenuse C.

definitions:

Pythagoras: The greatest genius ever lived. He is a "uber" smart mathematician, he was a Greek geek. It wasn't for sure that he was really alive or even existed.

Legs: These are connected to create the right angle of the right angle triangle a.k.a sides "A" and "B". They are also smaller than the hypotenuse.

Hypotenuse: The hypotenuse is the longest side of the right angle triangle, its the opposite side of the right angle also.


R.A.T: stands for Right Angle Triangle.

Greek : A person thatfrom ancient modern Greece.


Theorem: A theoretical proposition, statement, or formula, something to be proved from other formulas.

    Hello Kimmy, I need to leave comments behind in order to get my math mark up so here I am.

    Thankyou for explaining to us all the things we needed to know about squares and right angle triangles. And, of course the theorem and the guy who created it Pythagoras. I liked how you did some of your post in paint, it makes it more interesting I guess. Well, keep up the good work! =)
