# What other contributions did Pythagoras make?

Pythagoras was a famous philosopher and perhaps the world's first scientist. In looking for a better/uniform way to tune his harp, he discovered that the length of a string was in direct mathematical proportion to its pitch. From this revelation, Pythagoras made the leap of concluding that everything in nature could be expressed as mathematics. This approach to physics is still in use today. The Greek philosopher considered numbers to be sacred and developed a secret system of numerology. Pythagoras believed in reincarnation. Today, many people consider themselves 'Pythagoreans', that is, they have studied sacred numerology and beleve in reincarnation. Kaballists have the same belief as do Master Masons.

### What were Pythagoras's contributions to math?

Well most of his mathematic discoveries were destroyed , but the therom of Pythagoras still exists. The Therom of Pythagoras: (Concerning right angled triangles) The square of the hypotoneuse (the longest line;the line opposite the right angle) , is equal to the sum of the squares of both the other lines. A2+B2=C2 C represents the hypotoneuse and A and B represent the other two lines.

### When did Pythagoras discover his theorem?

Pythagoras supposedly made influential contributions to philosophy and religion in the late 6th century BC. He is best known for the Pythagorean theorem which bears his name. However, because legend and mystery cloud his work even more than that of the other pre-Socratic philosophers, only tentative accounts of his work are given, and it has been questioned whether he contributed much to mathematics or natural philosophy, and whether the Pythagorean theorem is even his.
