### Marc's Third Growing Post

Part I:

A Pythagorean Triple is a right triangle that uses a set of whole numbers (1, 2, 3, etc..) used to satisfy the problem a² + b² = c².

This picture shows that

3² + 4² = 5² = 9 + 16 = 25.

Some other triples are:

6² + 8² = 10² = 36 + 64 = 100

You can use this same picture

to show 6² + 8² = 10² you just

have to change the 3 into a 6,

the 4 into a 8 and the 5 into a

10.

Part III:

You are locked you of your house, the only way in is an open window on the second floor 25 feet above the ground. Youre going to borrow a ladder from one of your neighbours. There are bushes around house so you have to put the ladder 10 feet away from the wall. What length of the ladder do you need to get to the window?
Part IV:
Mr. Jerema tells you that a right triangle has a hypotenuse of 13 and a leg of 5. She asks you to find the other leg of the triangle. What is your answer?
