No it can only be used with right angle triangles.

Yes Pythagoras' theorem is applicable to right angle triangles

No. The Pythagorean theorem applies only to right triangles...those containing a right angle (90 degrees).

Because they both involve right angle triangles

it showed us how to determine the hypotenuse of right angle triangles

The Pythagorean Theorem is a statement about triangles containing a right angle. The Pythagorean Theorem states that:"The area of the square built upon the hypotenuse of a right triangle is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares upon the remaining sides."

No, the pythagorean theorem only works on right triangles, but it will work on any right triangle. This is because the Pythagorean Theorem states that length of Leg A squared plus the length of Leg B Squared equals the length of the hypotenuse squared. A hypotenuse is always found opposite a right angle. Only right triangles have right angles; therefore, the Pythagorean Theorem only applies to right triangles. :D

The Pythagorean theorem is actually the law of cos, where the angle is 90.

It applies to right triangles ... any triangle, in a flat plane, that has one right angle in it.

Yes because the given dimensions concur with Pythagoras' theorem for right angle triangles.

The sum of the squares of the sides adjacent to the right angle equals the square of the side opposite it.

pythagorean theorem

The Pythagorean Theorem states that in a right triangle with legs a and b and hypotenuse c, a2 + b2 = c2. The converse of the Pythagorean theorem states that, if in a triangle with sides a, b, c, a2 + b2 = c2 then the triangle is right and the angle opposite side c is a right angle.

When working out the sides of a right angle triangle.

No, the Pythagorean Theorem only works on right triangles. You could use the law of cosines, though: c^2=a^2+b^2-2ab*cos(C) Where C is the measure of the angle between sides a and b.

Pythagoras' theorem is applicable to right angle triangles

If you are referring to Pythagoras' theorem for right angle triangles then the theorem states that for any right angle triangle the square of its hypotenuse is equal to the sum of its squared sides.
