...The name Pythagoras is known to every schoolchild through his famous geometric theorem stating that **the square on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal to** the sum of the squares on the other two sides. But few are taught that the historical Pythagoras was... | |

...confidence that something is true that it affects his whole life. To take a simple example, I believe that **the square on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal to** the sum of the squares of the other two sides - but it makes no difference to me. But I believe that... | |

...One of the propositions that can be proved from the axioms is the famous theorem of Pythagoras, that **the square on the hypotenuse of a rightangled triangle is equal to** the sum of the squares on the other two sides. Surprisingly perhaps, it was not until the seventeenth... | |

...are therefore 9, 16 and 25 units 2 . 25 = 9 + 16 This is known as Pythagoras' theorem and it states: **the square on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal to** the sum of the squares on the other two sides. Given the areas of two of the squares, we can calculate... | |

...cannot call that a demonstration which is only a chain of ideas leaving many difficulties. To say that **the square on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal to** the sum of the squares on the other two sides is a demonstration which, however complicated it may... | |

...the sides of the triangle are a, b, and c units (see figure b), then c2 = a2 + b2 In words we say: **"The square on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal to** the sum of the squares of the other two sides." The theorem of Pythagoras is used for finding the length... | |

...cut to suit 3-4-5 triangles in megalithic inches, but it seems obvious. Now 32 + 42 = 25 = 52 and so **'the square on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal to** the sum of the squares on the other two sides'. We incline to the idea that Megalithic Man did not... | |
