(11 60 61)








(12 35 37)









Part Two:







FIND THE MISSING LEG:


















FIND THE MISSING HYPOTENUSE:











Part Three:





Part Four:

Lindsay is in math class and is learning about the pythagorean theorem (a² + b²= c²). The question on the board is asking how can you prove that 3² + 6²= 9². Expalin if the answer is right or wrong. Use a picture to show your work.
