### How do you do the pythagoreum theorem?

The pythagorean theorem states that in a right triangle, the
hypotenuse ( the line opposite of the right angle) squared is the
two sides squared and added up. In other words. a squared plus b
squared equals c squared. C squared is the hypotenuse squared.
then, you can find the length of C by finding the square root of C.
Ex. right triangle has 2 sides with lengths. 4 and 5. the missing
length is c. 4 squared plus 5 squared equals 16 plus 25 which is
41. square root of 41 is 6.4. That is the length of c. sorry if
it's a little confusing.

### How do you do the pythagorean theorem?

To use the Pythagorean theorem (which is "a squared + b squared
= c squared") you must take the two legs (smaller sides) in a right
triangle (a and b), square each, and add them to each other (a
squared + b squared). Then, you take the sum (which is c squared)
and find the square root, then you are left with the hypotenuse -
your answer. This works in reverse to find the legs as well.
a(2) and b(2) will be either side of a right angle of a
triangle. C(2) is the long diagonal slope that joins the end of
a(2) and c(2) to make a triangle.
for example:
If a(2) is 4cm long and b(2) is 5cm long this will be the
equation to solve the length of c(2)
a(2) + b(2) = c(2)
4(2) + 5(2) = c(2)
16 + 25 = c(2)
41 = c(2) You get 41 by adding 16 & 25 and then you find the
square root of 41 which is 6.40312
So the length of c is 6.40312 cm
