## Who/What/Where/When About Pythagoras and the Pythagorean Theorem

**It was known to be one of the earliest theorems known to Ancient civilizations. The famous theorem is named for the Greek mathematical and philosopher, Pythagoras. He found this theorem in the school of mathematics, in Corina. A Greek seaport in southern Italy. The short equation for this theorem is A² + B² = C². It is a relation of geometry, among the three sides of a right triangle. The hypotenuse (The side opposite of the right angle) is equal to the other 2 sides, sums. A² + B² = C². The C represents the length of the hypotenuse and A and B the lengths of the triangles two other sides. The Pythagorean theorem is used any time there is a right triangle. We know the 2 sides just need the third side. So square the two other sides, add them up, and then use the square root, to find the length of the hypotenuse side. Pythagoras proved that the Pythagorean theorem was real and it worked. He was the original formulator, and was proved by him too. Sides A and B are the shot and long leg of this theorem, which makes up the angle. This was discovered by Pythagoras in 500 BC - 569 BC. Integers that satisfy the conditions A² + B² = C² are called Pythagorean triples.**
