## Pythagoras, the Mathematician

Pythagoras developed a very large passion for math after being a teacher. He soon turned his entire career to math. He became a mathematician. During his job, he focused on even and odd numbers, perfect numbers, and triangular numbers. He also invented the Pythagorean Theory of triangles.

## The Pythagorean Theory

The Pythagorean Theory is that the longest side of a triangle can easily be found out if you have the length of the other two sides. you do this by turning each side into squares and adding *a* and *b *(the long sides)* *and* c *(the long side) is the answer.

## Contributions

Pythagoras made many contributions to the world in his theorem. It is very important in building, geometry, and it also is important in algebra. This allows us to accurately find the length of 1 side of a triangle when not all information is provided. We will not always receive the length of each side of a triangle and it is important that we know what to do if we don't.
