### Jerome's Pythagorus gorwing post

Pythagorus Triple

What is a pythago

Three unknown numbers, a, b, and c that satisfy a2+b2=c2 is a pythagorean triple

heres an example

a=6 b=8 c=10

so its a2+b2=c2

6(squared)+8(squared)=10(squared)

36+64=100

Question 2

Question 3

Lefrog stands 1.5 meters from a wall where a fly is 2 meters up. if Lefrog's tongue comes out of his mouth 70 cm from the ground, how far does his tongue have to stretch to eat the fly ?

Okie first we must know what our formula is going to be which is A2+b2+c2 . we had to gather the information that was given to find out the lengths of a² and b² . a² was the length of how high the fly was up the wall (2m-0.70=1.3m), and b² was how far Lefrog stood from the wall(1.5). So since we already knew that information all we had to do was the calculations to find out what c² was. To do that all we had to do was add a² and b² together then find the square root of it.

The answer in the end was 1.98m

question 4

Spongebob has just found his arm. It is on his um Spatula. He is 1.8m away from it and it is 3m high. Spongebob Stands 50 cm tall. How far would he have to reach with his nose, thats right his nose to reach his arm?
