### mikyL's pathagorous scribe post

in this unti we have learned about the pythagours system. in this unit we have read worked and listened to mr.harbeck talk about what im gonna talk about.

first of all:

we learned about the system its self.

hypotenuse- the right triangles largest slide in between the legs. the hypotenuse can be calculated many different ways as i will explain in ferther explanations.
yellow: 7cm
blue 4cm
purple:?

pathegrous- if you look to the left this is a pathagorous question.
to calculate it you need to know how much the sqaures are each worth. so we know that yellow is worth 7cm and blue is worth 4cm. so nopw we know that A(sq.) + B(sq.) = C(sq.)
so to calculate that you do A+B+C
4+7=11cm (sq.)
now not always you will have a triangle that is a right triangle. if it is not a right triangle you must state that it isnt and say why. for example if the triangle does not have a little square in the middle of the legs, then it may not add up equal and it will NOT be a right triangle. :)
i hope you like my pathagourus post. I DONT HAVE ALOT OF INFORMATION BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY COMMENTS THEN POST THEM BELLOW AND I WILL TRY AND ANSWER THEM TO MY BEST ABILITIES :) THANKS!
