In this math lesson we will investigate easy Pythagorean Theorem proofs and problems.
The Pythagorean Theorem takes place in a right triangle. The longest side in a right triangle is called hypotenuse, and the other two sides are called legs. The hypotenuse opposes the right angle.
According to the Pythagorean Theorem:
A squared + B squared = c squared
The Pythagorean Theorem is one of the most important theorems in geometry. You can use it to find the unknown side in a right triangle, and to find the distance between two points.
Watch the above videos to learn how to apply this theorem when finding the unknown side or the area of a right triangle.
