False.

### Does the Pythagorean theorem always work?

No it never works.

### Is the diagonal of a square the same as its side?

Not always, the diagonal can be figured out using the Pythagorean Theorem (a&sup2;+b&sup2;=c&sup2;). Where the diagonal is the hypotenuse (c). By rearranging the Pythagorean Theorem, you can see that the diagonal of a square is always 1.4 times the side of the square.

### Is Pythagorean theorem always a right triangle?

Yes Pythagoras' theorem is applicable to right angle triangles

### Is the phythagorean theorem the exact measurement?

Yes, the Pythagorean theorem gives the exact measurements always. It can be backed up by proofs and sin, cosine, etc.

### 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

### Why are there so many ways to prove the pythagorean theorem?

Because in a right angle triangle the square of its hypotenuse is always equal to the sum of each side squared.

### What is the Pythagorean theory?

The pythagorean theory or pythagorean theorem is a formula to find the leg or the hypotenuse for a right triangle. There are three parts to a triangle, The legs(A2) and (B2). The hypotenuse (C2). The hypotenuse is always the longest side of the triangle it is always adjacent to the 900 angle of the right triangle. The actual pythagorean theorem is A2 + B2 = C2. Example: A=2 B= 4 C=? A2 + B2 =C2 22 + 42 =C2 4 + 16= C2 20=C2 Now you find the square root for the two numbers you just added 4.4 = C

### What does the Pythagorean theorem state and which triangle does it apply to?

This particular theorem states that the sum of the squares of the two sides of a triangle always equals to the square of the hypotenuse or the biggest side of the triangle. It applies only to right triangles. Right triangles have only one right angle and is always opposite to the hypotenuse.

### What are some ways you can use the Pythagorean Theorem?

Pythagoras theorem is always used in right angle triangles. It can be used to find any of the third side is two sides are given, It can also used to find the area of cone if slant height or anything else is missing.
