A Pythagorean Triple is 3 unknown numbers a, b,c that work with a2, b2=c2

Part 2:Using embeddable web 2.0, describe how to find the missing side of a Right Triangle using the Pythagorean Theorem, show how to solve both for a missing leg and the hypotenuse (note: you may use numerical examples ie. a=4 b=6 c=?)

Part 3:Explain how to solve a Pythagoras word problem. Use one of the examples we covered in class

Problem B

You’ve just picked up a ground ball at first base, and you see the other team’s player running towards third base. How far do you have to throw the ball to get it from first base to third base, and throw the runner out?

Part 4:Now that you have seen many Pythagorean problems, create your own word problem.

QUESTION 1:

**What is a Pythagorean Tripple?**

Pythagorean triple are three unknown numbers: a, b, and c. They follow the formula

**a**

**²+b²=c².**

**A and B are the**

**legs**and c is the

**hypotneuse.**

**FORMULA: a²+b²=c²**

c=? 64+36=c²

### Nikki's Pythagorean Growing Post

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

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.

### Tier's Pythagoras Growing Post

What's the Pythagorean triple?

For those of you who are familiar with the Pythagorean theorem, you might have came across this during your investigations.

But for those of you who aren't, a Pythagorean triple is a set of 3 numbers. In that set of numbers, when all of them are squared, adding the two lowest numbers will equal the remaining number.

*Note: after squaring, the resulting numbers must all be whole number.*

For Example, 3, 4, 5 is a Pythagorean triple.

To figure out if this set is one of the Pythagorean triple, we need to find out if the two lowest numbers squared will equal the highest number squared.

first, the formula, then we apply the measurements, then we squared the numbers that required squaring. then add a and b together.

a2 + b2 = c2

32 + 42 = 52

9 + 16 = 25

25 = 25

if the answers below equal each other, the set is one of the Pythagorean triple.

There are other sets of Pythagorean triple too.

Some of them are 6, 8, 10 and 12, 16, 20. Try them out!

Part2:

How to find the missing Hypotenuse

Finding to missing leg:

*My Computer Won't upload the Pictures to bubbleshare, sorry.*

Its basically similar to how to find the missing hypotenuse, but instead of the formula: a2 + b2 = c2. The formula used is either c2 - a2 = b2 or c2 - b2 = a2.

pretend these are the givens:

c= 5

b= 4

a= ?

because were trying to find the missing leg a, we use the formula c2 - b2 = a2.

c2 - b2 = a2

52 - 42 = a2

25 - 16 = a2

9 = a2

3 = a

Part3:

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?

Start With the Formula:

a2 + b2 = c2

a= 25

b= 10

c= ?

a2 + b2 = c2

252 + 102 = c2

625 + 100 = c2

725 = c2

26.92 = c

Part 4:

Lucas wanted to attack Mario with his magic called "PK Thunder". Since Mario is on top of a 19 feet cliff and Lucas was 20 feet away from the cliff with 3 feet long spikes between them, he has to attack from far away. Magic's starting point is from Lucas' hands which is the same height as the spikes from the ground. How long does Lucas' attack have to travel?

What is a Pythagorean Triple?

a Pythagorean Triple is a right triangle

which involve 2 legs, which are A and B,

and the hypotenuse which is the C, and

it uses a formula of a²+b²=c²

The Perfect Square chart Also Helps me !

Problem B

You’ve just picked up a ground ball at first base, and you see the other team’s player running towards third base. How far do you have to throw the ball to get it from first base to third base,

and throw the runner out?

Since they had to throw from 1st base to 3rd base. When you put a line across you can see the triangle. Once you can see the triangle you can be able to figure out the answer for the question.

Ash wanted to catch a Treecko, but it was all the way on the top of the tree. The tree was 6m tall. Ash was 4m away from the tree and from the pokeball down was 250cm. How far does Ash have to throw his pokeball for him to get the Treecko?

a2+b2=c2

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

6squared = (6x6=) 36 = a2

8squared = (8x8=) = 64 b2

10squared = (10x10=) = 100 c2

SO THE QUESTION , IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, IS REALLY

36 + 64 = 100

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

### judy's scribe

Today in class, we finished our "Word Problems" tab in our Pythagoras book. We added 3 more word problems, known as problem A, problem B, and the bonus problem. I'm going to scribe about problem B:

You’ve just picked up a ground ball at first base, and you see the other team’s player running towards third base. How far do you have to throw the ball to get it from first base to third base, and throw the runner out?

What are we trying to find? The distance from the first base to the third base.

1/2 of the diamond is a right angle triangle, and the length of two sides are given. That means we can use the Pythagorean theorem to find the distance from first base to third base.

(The side that we are trying to find is across the right angle, so it's the hypotenuse, c.)

formula to find the hypotenuse:

a² + b² = c²

we know that...

a=90

b=90

c=?

plug in the numbers, and follow the formula:

a² + b² = c²

90²+ 90²= c²

8100+8100=c²

16 200=c²

..........then you have to find the square root of 16 200 to find the square root of c², which is c

√16 200 = √c²

127.27= c

You'll have to throw the ball 127.27ft to get it from first base to third base.
