What is the Pythagorean Theorem?
Pythagorean Theorem is a theory that proves the hypotenuse is equal to the legs of the right angled triangle.
How to solve a problem using Pythagorean Theorem
Take a right angled triangle and say the legs of the triangle(the two shorter sides of the triangle(a2+b2) are three and four. The hypotenuse of the triangle is unknown. To figure it out we have to: First, take the legs of the triangle and double them with the exponent of two. Take the doubles and add them. The double of 3 is 9 and the double of 4 is 16. Adding 9+16 would equal 25. Second, take the square root of 25 and the square root of the hypotenuse(c2), and the answer is 5=C
