**Part 1: Pythagorean Theorem**

**A**

**pythagorean theorem**states that the legs of the right triangle (a and b) and the hypotenuse obey the following relationship a2 + b2 = c2...

A

**Pythagorean Triple**is a right triangle that uses a set of numbers (1, 2, 3...etc.[no decimal]) that satisfy a2 + b2 = c2...

For example:

32+42=52

since 32 is 9 and 42 is 16...it equals to 52 which is 25...

You will know where the hypotenuse is because it is always on the opposite side of the right angle...
