## Jobs that use the Pythagorean Theorem?

Construction managers, Computer software engineers, Mathematicians, Carpenters, Construction and building inspectors that use the Pythagorean Theorem at their work.

## Construction manager Construction manager looking at blueprints. | ## Computer Software Engineer Computer Software Engineer working on a computer. | ## Carpenter Carpenter sawing a piece of wood in half. |

## Why it's important to know how to use the Pythagorean Theorem?

One reason why it's important to know how to use the Pythagorean Theorem because if you were to grow up and become a construction manager you have to know how to use the Pythagorean Theorem when making blueprints for a building you are going to have built somewhere. So that's one reason why it's important to know how to use the Pythagorean Theorem when you work at a job that you have to use the Pythagorean Theorem in when you are working.
