It was years before, Pythagoras(580 BC - 500 BC) is said to have discovered Pythagorean Theorem. Strangely, 5 centuries after Pythagoras lived, the theorem Pythagorean was attributed to him. The discovery of the theorm Pythagorean came when Pythagoras was waiting for the tyrannical ruler, Polycrates. An interesting idea had flashed Pythagoras mind: A diagonal line can be used to cut or divide the square and two right triangles would be produced from the cut sides. After examining it further, Pythagoras formulated the idea in mind. Happy to help you.

a2+b2=c2

Pythagoras was well known for the Pythagorean Theorem.

When Pythagoras discovered his theorem, he used the general terms of a & b for the shorter legs and c for the longer side which he gave the name "hypotenuse". Thus we have the famous PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM!a^2 + b^2 = c^2

Yes you have to use the pythagorean theorm to find the length of a right triangle. But you must subtract A2 from C2 then square root the answer.
