A previous US president didnt invent the Pythagorean Theorem. A mathematician with the last name of "Pythagoras" did. After he died, his students continued with his studies and once they perfected it, they named the famous theorem after Pythagoras, their professor.

However, President ames Garfield devised a new proof for the theorem and Garfield's proof still appears in geometry books .

There was a mysterious society known as the Pythagoreans who studied some mathematics, but also attached mystical properties to numbers . It is not certain what Pythagoras the person actually did or even if he actually existed.
