A right angle is an angle of 90 degrees. Any angle not 90 degrees is not a right angle. End of story.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

How do you find the measure of the remaining two angles in a right triangle?

Use the pythagorean theorem.

How was pythagorean theorem helpful to ancient civilizations?

It enabled them to make right angles - useful in construction.

What shape does the Pythagorean theorem use?

The Pythagorean theorem uses the right triangle.

Does the Pythagorean Theorem work on all triangles?

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

Who created the theorem about solving right angles?

I.m assuming you are talking about the pythagorean theorem ( a2 + b2 = c2) and thus the guygiven credit for it is Pythagoras

Explain in the pythagorean theorem must be a right triangle?

yes it only apllies to the right triangle and "c" is the hypotnuse of the triangles

How can you explain how to use Pythagorean theorem?

Pythagoras' theorem states that for any right angle triangle its hypotenuse when squared is equal to the sum of its squared sides.

What were the major accomplishments of Pythagoras?

Pythagoras is known or the... "Pythagorean theorem" or that.. The sum of the angles of a triangle is equal to two right angles The Pythagorean theorem Constructing figures of area Discovery of irrationals Five regular solids Earth is a sphere at the center of the universe (astronomy) Pythagoras Theorem The hypotenuse of a right triangle when squared is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides.

Why can't the Pythagorean theorem be used without a right angle?

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

What is the difference between the pythagorean theorem and the converse of the 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.

What does the pythagorean theorem apply to?

right angled triangles

When does the Pythagorean theorem apply?

With right angle triangles
