b = the square root of (c2 - a2)
The great pythagorean theorm: a(squared) + b(squared) = c(squared)
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.
Dispute between 582BC and 569BC...
Any time you measure distance using triangulation or utilise angles in theorems.
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
In the Pythagorean Theorem b is not twice a. The formula is [ a squared + b squared = c squared].
Because he did not write things down, it is hard to say. Most historians believe that the Sumerians used it, but Pythagoras proved it to always be true.
B = (4100x4100) - (14500x14500)
A Pythagorean triple is three positive integers a, b, and c, such that a^2 + b^2 = c^2. A well known Pythagorean triplet is (3,4,5). If (a, b, c) is a Pythagorean triplet, then so is (ka, kb, kc) for any positive integer k.
