Emily's Pythagoras Growing Post

Pythagorean Triple

Part 1.


The Pythagorean Theorem states that the two
legs (a & b) and the hypotenous is (c). The Pythagorean Theorem is - a2 + b2 = c2. The Pythagorean Triple is when you have 2 perfect squares you add the two perfect squares (the legs a & b) together. Then when you add them together you get another perfect square.


a2 + b2 = c2
(a squared + b squared = c squared)


The Perfect Square Chart





This picture shows what the number equals when it is squared, using this perfect square chart.














Part 2. Finding the missing side.


Finding the missing Hypotenuse.
