### Melissa's Pythagoras Growing Post

PART 1

A Pythagoren Triple is a right triangle that uses a set of numbers(1,2,3....etc). The numbers should not be a decimal. This set of numbers can also satisfy as a2+b2=c2.
For example:

-Multiply 3 by 3 it's equal to 9.

- Multiply 4 by 4 equal to 16.

-Add 16 by 9, equals to 25.

- The legs of the triangle can be labelled a and b.

- It doesn't matter which leg is labelled a or b.

- But the hypotenuse is always labelled c.

This is what Pythagorean Triple looks like.
