The Pythagorean Theorem (project by Kaylee Young)
The theorem and real world use
- The theorem is A2+B2 = C2
The theorem states that when you put squares on each side of a right angled triangle that the 2 of the right angled triangle squares that are smaller or the "A" and "B" parts put together add up to be the square of the longest side or "C"
EX. HOW WE USE IT IN THE REAL WORLD
I want to get a tv for my stand that can hold a 22 inch tv. Let's just say that I found a tv 16 inches wide and 10 inches high. Will the tv fit my same? We can use the theorem to find out.
(16 inches) 2 + (10 inches)
256 + 100 = C
√ 356 = C
18 inches approx. = C
