The Theorem of Pythagoras
- Marcela Marcos
In a right triangle the most important part to determine is the hypothenuse (c). It is the opposite side to the right angle. The other two are called legs (a) and (b).
In this activity you will demonstrate that a^2 + b^2 = c^2 If point c is dragged, do the relationship between hypotenuse and legs for a^2 + b^2 = c^2 remain the same? Why are we using squares to proof the theorem?
