Great Math Wizettes!

The sum of the areas of the two squares on the legs (a and b) equals the area of the square on the hypotenuse (c).


Theorem-Named after the Greek philosophy Pythagorus. 

This theorem states that any hypotenuse or the side of a right triangle, is equal to the sum of the squares of the other sides.  Or this:                                    http://z.about.com/d/math/1/5/e/D/pythagoreantheorem.gif

  The Pythagorean Theorem is a mathematical relationship between the sides of a right triangle. A right triangle is any triangle that has one right internal angle. Pythagoras stated, if the length of the legs (smallest side) are squared and their sum is found, the sum will be equal to the square of the hypotenuse (longest side). Algebraically speaking, the relationship looks like…
