### Pythagorean Theorem :

Pythagorean Theorem By Jailenne and Bailey

### History:

History The Pythagorean Theorem was first discovered and proofed by Greek mathematician Pythagoras of Samos, in the sixth century B.C . There is evidence that Babylonian mathematicians' understood the formula, although there is little surviving evidence that they used it in a mathematical framework

### What is the Pythagorean Theorem? :

What is the Pythagorean Theorem? The Pythagorean Theorem is the relationship between the three side to a triangle. It states that a( squared) + b( squared) = c( squared). “A” being the shorter or bottom line, “b” is the other line that meets a and forms a right, or 90 degree, angle. “C” is the side opposite the 90 degree angle.

### Facts about the Pythagorean Theorem :

Facts about the Pythagorean Theorem The Pythagorean theorem is unique in such a way that it can be proved by many different ways. The book "The Pythagorean Proposition", written by Elisha S. Loomis contains as many as 367 proofs. The Pythagorean Theorem is important because it is essential to every day life for builders, artists, photographs and more. This is what is used to keep buildings square and to know what the exact size of the foundation should be.

### More Facts…..:

More Facts….. James A. Garfield, 20 th US president provided a proof for the Pythagorean Theorem. The scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz makes a reference to the theorem. When he gets his diploma from the wizard, he shows his “intelligence” by saying an incorrect version of the theorem: "The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side. Oh, joy! Oh, rapture! I've got a brain!"

### Mathematical problems using the Pythagorean Theorem :

Mathematical problems using the Pythagorean Theorem 3² + 4²= 25 6² + 8²= 100 13² + 5²=194 8² +12²= 208 7² + 14²= 245
