**Part 1: **Describe what a Pythagorean Triple is and use your perfect square chart from 1 squared to 10 squared to find another one other than 3,4,5. (Note: You need a picture, not simply text.)

The definition that Mr. Jerema gave us was:

"A Pythagorean Triple is a right triangle that uses a set of whole numbers (1, 2, 3....etc) that satisfy A² + B² = C²"

A pythagorean Triple is a right triangle where the sides are in the ratio of a positive integer or whole number.

Examples are] 3:4:5, 6:8:10, 5:12:13, 9:12:15, 8:15:17 etc.

The formula is simple] a² + b² = c² OR x² + y² = z²

You can invert that formula with the examples like this] 3² x 4² = 5²

perfect square chart

1 x 1 = 1

2 x 2 = 4

3 x 3 = 9

4 x 4 = 16

5 x 5 = 25

6 x 6 = 36

7 x 7 = 49

8 x 8 = 64

9 x 9 = 81

10 x 10 = 100

**Part 2:** Using embeddable web 2.0, describe how to find the missing side of a Right Triangle using the Pythagorean Theorem, show how to solve both for a missing leg and the hypotenuse (note: you may use numerical examples ie. a=4 b=6 c=?)
