natasha's pythagorean relationship
the pythagorean relationship can be used to show if a triangle is a right triangle.
6 squared+8 square= 10 squared
square root of "C" squared= square root of 100cm squared is 10
the sum of the areas of the two smaller squares is 100cm squared.
the triangle is a right triangle.
a squared+b squared= c squared
8 squared+6 squared=11 squared
square root of "C"squared= square root of 121cm squared is 11
the triangle a right triangle.
C squared= a squared+b squared
C squared= 12 squared+5 squared
C squared=244 squared
square root of "C" squared= square root of 244 is 15
C square= 15cm
