# 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.

# What were the contribution of Pythagoras?

Pythagoras discovered the Pythagorean Theorem. The Pythagorean Theorem is the basis of trigonometry. GPS satellites use Pythagoras' ideas to find where people are …on Earth with a system called triangulation.

# What is Pythagoras' theorem?

Pythagoras' Theorem is a statement proving that in a right angled triangle the square of the longest side (the hypotenuse) equals the sum of the squares on the other two s…ides. The formula for this is: A squared + B squared = C squared. C represents the hypotenuse on this formula, while A and B represent the other two perpendicular sides. Exercise:Use squared paper & draw a triangle in the center of the page. Make the short sides of length 6 cm & 8 cm. Draw a square on each side. Measure the area of each square: hint 6 x 6 = 36 and so on. Having found the areas, add the areas of the squares on the two shorter sides. Compare your answer with the area of the square on the longest side. What do you notice? Repeat this for more triangles and see if you can see a pattern. (The use of upper case for vertices and lower case for the actual sides of a triangle is prevalent. So we write triangle ABC having sides of length a, b, c.)

# 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.

# Why did Pythagoras discovered Pythagoras theorem?

# Who is Pythagoras?

# What did Pythagoras have to do with music?

Pythagoras discovered the properties of string length, and that certain ratios of string length are more pleasing to the human ear. The ration is 3:2.

# Where is Pythagoras from?

# What can Pythagoras theorem do?

The Pythagorean Theorem is a relation of the sides in a right-angle triangle. This triangle has two "legs" (sides A and B) that intersect at a 90Â° angle and one hypotenuse (s…ide C) that connects the two sides. The formula a2+b2 = c 2, is used to find the value of a missing side. Ex: IF, a=2 and b=3, then c= ~3.46 because the values of a and b were squared and added. Then you found the value of c was found by squaring the value of a2 and b2

# What did Pythagoras do for mathematics?

Greek Mathematician Pythagoras is considered by some to be one of the first great mathematicians. Living around 570 to 495 BC, in modern day Greece, he is known to have founde…d the Pythagorean cult, who were noted by Aristotle to be one of the first groups to actively study and advance mathematics. He is also commonly credited with the Pythagorean Theorem within trigonometry. However, some sources doubt that is was him who constructed the proof (Some attribute it to his students, or Baudhayana, who lived some 300 years earlier in India). Nonetheless, the effect of such, as with large portions of fundamental mathematics, is commonly felt today, with the theorem playing a large part in modern measurements and technological equipment, as well as being the base of a large portion of other areas and theorems in mathematics. But, unlike most ancient theories, it played a bearing on the development of geometry, as well as opening the door to the study of mathematics as a worthwhile endeavor. Thus, he could be called the founding father of modern mathematics.

# 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.
