# How do you do 5 12 12 in pythagorean triples formula?

You can't. 5, 12, 12 is not a Pythagorean triplet. Instead 5,
12, **13** is a triplet.

As such: 5^2 + 12^2 = 13^2

25 + 144 = 169

169 = 169

### How do you find pythagorean triples?

You have your basic 3-4-5, 5-12-13, and 8-15-17 Pythagorean Triples which are just patterns that have been discovered by mathematicians along the ages, but here is a Wikipedia link if you want more depth: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Formulas_for_generating_Pythagorean_triples Also, here is a good link for a list of a lot of triples, plus cool graphics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pythagorean_triple

### What is the length of the hypotenuse of a right angled triangle where one side equals 4m and the other equals 3m?

5 m. Using Pythagoras: Hypotenuse2 = side2 + other_side2 ⇒ Hypotenuse = √(side2 + other_side2) = √((3 m)2 + (4 m)2) = √(9 m2 + 16 m2) = √(25 m2) = 5 m 3, 4, 5 is a well known Pythagorean triple - the three sides of a right angle triangle (32 + 42 = 9 + 16 = 25 = 52) Another is: 5, 12, 13 (52 + 122 = 25 + 144 =…

### How does Euclid's Formula Work?

Euclid's Formula is a method of generating Pythagorean Triples. A Pythagorean Triple is a set of three positive integers (whole numbers), which satisfy the equation a2 + b2 = c2. The smallest Pythagorean Triple is 3, 4, 5. Euclid's Formula says this: If you choose two positive integers m and n, with m < n, then the three numbers n2 - m2, 2mn and n2 + m2 form a Pythagorean Triple. For example, if m…

### What is the length of side c in right triangle if side a is 4cm and side b is 3cm?

From the Pythagorean Theorem: c^2 = a^2 + b^2. So, c = √(a^2 + b^2) substitute the given values: c = √(4^2 + 3^2) c = √(16 + 9) c = √25 c = 5 (since the length is always positive) One of the Pythagorean triples is 3,4,5. So, if you know all the Pythagorean triples, you don't need to do the computations above. The Pythagorean triple: A set of three positive integers a, b…

### How many units long is a line segment whose endpoints have coordinates -3 7 and 3 -5?

Here you are essentially using Pythagorean Theorem to find the Hypotenuse of the missing side. Using Slope Formula you have the length of the A side and the B side and u fill those numbers into the A2 + B2 = C2 Use the slope formula for the X and Y values 3- (-3) = 6 now take the absolute value of the answer... so the absolute value of 6 = 6 So this value…

### What is the formula for the Pythagorean theorem?

the formula: (a)(a) + (b)(b) = (c)(c) where "a" and "b" are the sides of a triangle both squared and "c" is the hypotenuse squared here is an example and an easier way to do imagine the number for side A is 5 and the number of B is 12 a^2 + b^2 = c^2 5^2 + 12^2 = c^2 25 + 144 = c^2 169 = c^2 c^2 = 169 c = √169 c…

### What did the pythagorean theorem do?

the pythagorean theorem is a formula in which the Hypotenuse measure is found out by using the 2 measurements of the other segments the hypotenuse is the longest end of a RIGHT triangle. (only right) example The slanted line is the hypotenuse if you put it with the right angle touching the ground. now lets say that the other sides (called the legs) are 4 and 2 the pythagorean throrem is A2+B2=C2 that is 42+22=C2…

### What is the pythagorean theorem if segment is 5 cm and is an isosceles triangle?

The Pythagorean Theory applies to right angle triangles. If your isosceles triangle happens to also be a right triangle, the formula is a² + b² = c² where a and b are the sides and c is the hypotenuse. To calculate the length of a side, it is necessary to know which side the 5cm segment refers to (either side or the hypotenuse).
