# What did Pythagoras discover?

He discovered how to find the length of the missing side of a right triangle, so if there was a 5 cm line and a 4 cm line he could tell the length of the other line on a t…riangle. The answer to the 5 cm by 4 cm would be 3 cm. That is his famous 5, 4, 3 triangle. The formula for it is A squared plus B squared equals C squared. (MORE)

# Was Pythagoras a boxer?

It's entirely possible a life of Pythagoras states that : But Eratosthenes says, as Favorinus quotes him, in the eighth book of his Universal History, that this philosopher, o…f whom we are speaking, was the first man who ever practised boxing in a scientific manner, in the forty-eighth Olympiad, having his hair long, and being clothed in a purple robe; and that he was rejected from the competition among boys, and being ridiculed for his application, he immediately entered among the men, and came off victorious. And this statement is confirmed among other things, by the epigram which Theaetetus composed:Stranger, if e'er you knew Pythagoras, Pythagoras, the man with flowing hair, The celebrated boxer, erst of Samos; I am Pythagoras. And if you ask A citizen of Elis of my deeds, You'll surely think he is relating fables. (MORE)

# Important Custody Needs that Often Get Overlooked

When a family is working to make the best custody plan possible, there are things that automatically come to mind. Having a set schedule for visitation, a holiday visitation p…lan and a child support budget are all obvious areas of custody. But there are some other aspects of custody that a lot of people miss until it is too late. Here are four things to consider when sorting out custody.It is important to make certain a custody plan includes an agreement about who will claim the children on their taxes. There is no standardized way for divorced parents to share this benefit, but a decision that works best for your situation can be written into the final order for divorce.In difficult custody battles, parents can be unrelenting when it comes to visitation. Parents who are angry or who cannot compromise with one another may hold custody to the letter of the agreement. This can cause a lot of stress when planning vacations during your children's childhood. A provision for vacation flexibility may need to be entered into the agreement. This way, if you or your child has an opportunity to attend an event, an educational outing or a trip but it does not fall during the appropriate visitation time frame, there is a way for everyone to be happy.In most cases, the courts require any parent who has access to medical insurance to provide coverage for the children. This can be a source of contention with ex's due to the costs involved. Most states require ex's to share all unreimbursed costs between one another. It can be difficult to manage the seemingly never-ending co-pays, over-the-counter costs and other costs associated with health care. Make a plan to manage how costs will be paid and include the plan into your agreement.When children are young, a divorced couple may not realize the impact growing children will have on their finances as they near adulthood. Child support orders do not usually assert what the monies are to be designated for. Neither does a custody agreement detail what activities a child will participate in or who will be responsible for bank rolling these expenses. Consideration must be given to who will place the child on their automotive insurance, who will cover purchases such as a car or who will help with costs not covered under food and shelter. If ex's can't cooperate, one may leave the other in the lurch over the years and cause animosity and financial hardship. To the extent that you can, make arrangements in your agreement to cover issues your child will face as a teen.When you are navigating your divorce, it is difficult to think of all of the variables that may happen in the course of a childhood, but the more details you have covered, the less likely you will have to make subsequent trips to the courtroom to manage raising your child to adulthood.

# Who was Pythagoras?

Pythagoras (c. 580-500 B.C.) was an ancient Greek philosopher who was interested in numbers and their meanings. He discovered the relationships between mathematics and mus…ic, proposing that sounds and their relationships with other sounds can be measured using numbers. He also proposed that the Earth is a sphere, that the Earth, Moon, and stars revolve around the Sun, and that astronomy (the study of stars, planets, and heavenly bodies) could be written as mathematical sentences called equations. Pythagoras and his followers used lines, triangles, and squares made out of pebbles to represent numbers. Today Pythagoras is best remembered for the Pythagorean theorem: The square of the length of the hypotenuse (the side of a right triangle opposite the right angle) of a right triangle equals the sum of the squares of the lengths of the triangle's other two sides.

Euclid was a Greek mathematician living in the 4th century BC who taught at the university in Alexandria, Egypt.

Euclid's Elements is the world's most famous mathematical work and is also the oldest continuously used mathematical textbook. It is the foundation of the geometry still being taught in schools almost two and one-half millennium after Euclid's death. (MORE)
