Pythagoras Theorem

Pythagoras Theorem 

The Pythagoras theorem deals with the lengths of the sides of a right triangle.

It is often written as the formula a^2 + b^2 = c^2

The sum of the square of a and b is equal to the square of c

For example, if a  = 5 and b = 6 to work out c you would do the calculation:

  • a^2 +b^2 = c^2

  • 5^2 + 6^2 = c^2

  • 25 + 36 = 61

  • c^2 = 61 

  • c = 7.81...

(Don't forget units!)
