If you have two lengths of the triangle, the Pythagorean theorem will help you find the third. As it is, you need to find two numbers whose squares add up to 1296. There are a lot of possibilities.

In the pythagorean theorem is b twice of a?

In the Pythagorean Theorem b is not twice a. The formula is [ a squared + b squared = c squared].

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.

Who developed the theory a plus b equals c?

A Mathematician named Pythagorean. That is why it is called Pythagorean's theorem. For every right triangle, this theorem will be true.

Is the pythagorean theorem true for an acute 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.

Is equation for the Pythagorean theorem is a b c?

it is asquared +b squared = c squared

What can be used to calculate the distance between two points on a coordinate place?

Use the Pythagorean theorem. A and B would be the difference in the X and Y coordinates, respectively. Solve for C and that's your distance. Pythagorean theorem: (A squared) + (B squared) = (C squared)

How do you find the height of a square based pyramid?

Use the Pythagorean theorem (a-squared + b-squared = c-squared) Remember, the hypotenuse is c.

How do you find the area of a square if it is 8 inches diagonal?

you use the Pythagorean theorem. a^2+b^2=c^2

Why is the formula for the Pythagorean theorem a bc?

a squared + b squared=c squared

What letter in the pythagorean theorem is used to represent the hypotenuse?

c is used for this purpose.

What if the pythagorean theorem gives you a triangle that is not right?

The pythagorean theorem is only used for a right triangle. Formula: a^2+b^2=c^2 the "a" and "b" represent the legs of the triangle and the "c" represents the hypotenuse.

What is pythagoren theorem?

The pythagorean theorem is a squared + b squared = c squared, where a and b are the legs of a right triangle, and c is the hypotenuse of a right triangle.
