Nikki's Pythagorean Growing Post

Question 1)
A pythagorean triple us 3 numbers that follow the rule of A2+B2=C2

A very good example of a Pythagorean triple is to use "3,4,5" This picture shows you that
  • 32=9
  • 42=16
  • 52=25
Question 2)
When your going to Find a missing leg you must follow the Formula of C2-A2=B2 OR C2-B2=A2 Ex.
52-42=A2 25-16=9 9=A2
Square root of 9=3

HOW TO FIND THE MISSING HYPOTENUSE

32+42=C2 9+16=25 Square root of 25=5

Question 3)
Worksheet problem A.
First follow the pythagorean theorem.
A2 + B2 = C2 25,2 + 10,2 = C2 625 + 100 = 725 725/ = 26.925

(FOR PICTURE BELOW)
729 - 676 = 53
725 - 676 = 49
26 49/53
And that's how you get your Answer.













Question 4)
Tristian is at the Brick. He is planning to buy a bed with the money he had kept for a
an amount of a very long time. He finds a bed that might be just right for him.
The bed is a right triangular shape. He knows that both (of the) short sides are 4
but he doesnt know what the (hypotenuse) long side is. Help tristian figure out how
long the side is.
