Erick's Pythagoras Growing Post

A Pythagorean Triple is three unknown numbers, A, B, and C that satisfy a2+b2=c2 is a pythagorean triple.


This example shows, - 6squared + 8squared = 10squared

6squared = (6x6=) 36 = a2

8squared = (8x8=) = 64 b2

10squared = (10x10=) = 100 c2


36 + 64 = 100

Part 3:
This is Word porblem A

You`re locked out of your house and the only open window is on the second floor, 25 feet above the ground. You need to borrow a ladder from one of your neighbors. There's a bush along the edge of you house, so you`ll have to place the ladder 10 feet from the house. What length of ladder do you need to reach the window?

Now we start with the formula:
a2 +b2= c2

Now Heres what it looks like in the right triangle.

Now we simply do all the math work.

a2 + b2 = c2
25 squared
+ 10 squared = c2
625 + 100 = c2
725 = c2
Square root 725 to get c

c = 26.92

Part 4
My Word Problem Example

So Sora is done his adventure and comes across a keyhole. He is 10 meters away from it. The keyhole is 20 meters high. Sora is 4 meters tall. His Keyblade can fit exactly into the keyhole from the distance he is standing from. How long is his Keyblade?

Key Info...
10 meters away
Keyhole 20 meters High
Sora 4 meters Tall

Your question is really good and creative. But if you are holding up the 'Keyblade' shouldn't there be an arm extension?
Well I solved your question is it 20.40?
Well good job Erick
