What is a brief biography of Pythagoras?

Pyhagoras of Samos, the Ionian (Greek) philosopher and mathematician, lived circa 570 to 495 BCE. He is notable mainly for his many accomplishments and views on religion, mystical ideals, mathematics, science, and philosophy; however, as there is a lack of evidence and a clouding around him, it is unknown whether most of these are his, those of his colleagues, or both. Most known is the infamous and highly important Pythagorean theorem (so named after him), which states that in a right triangle the sides a2 + b2 = c2.

What contributions did Pythagoras make to the mathematics world?

The Pythagorean Theorem says that in a right triangle, the sum of the squares of the two right angle sides will always be the same as the square of the hypotenuse if your not sure I'm probably wrong.kjyukkuyyku

^^ yeah that's right. the formula is A squared + B squared = C squared

Every day application of Pythagoras theorem?

1. A practical application of Pythagoras Theorem is to check where the ploat or a building or land are in the form of a square or rectangle ( i.e. each corner angle is 90 degree or not )

2. For finding the third side of a right angle triangle

3. Use of Trigometry i.e. sinx , cosx and tanx based on right angle triangle are used in finding the area of many geometrical figures like area of any triangle , rectangle etc.

4. many more ........

What was Pythagoras's legacy?

Pythagoras was a Greek philosopher and mathematician who lived around 500 BC. He discovered/created the Pythagorean theorem, whereby the squares of the two shorter sides of the triangles are equal to the square of the hypotenuse, or longest side.

His famed formula is: a2 + b2 = c2 where a= the length of one of the shorter sides, b=the length of the other shorter side, and c=the length of the longest side, or hypotenuse.

What is Pythagoras's educational background?

He spent the next 22 years perfecting himself in mathematics, astronomy, music, and was initiated into the Egyptian Mysteries. When Cambyses II, the king of Persia invaded Egypt in 525BC, he made Pythagoras his prisoner and sent him to Babylon. He utilized this misfortune as an opportunity for growth, and for the next 12 years he studied with the Magi and was initiated into the Chaldean Mysteries. Leaving Babylon, he made his way through Persia to India, where he continued his education under the Brachmanes. At that time India was still feeling the effects of the spiritual revival brought about by Gautama the Buddha. Although Pythagoras arrived in India too late to come into personal contact with the Buddha, he was greatly influenced by his teachings. He went to India a student, he left it as a teacher, and even to this day he is known in that country as Pitar Guru, and as Yavanacharya, the Ionian Teacher.

Give a short note on aryabhatta?

ARYABHATTA, or, as written by the Arabs, ARJABAHR, a celebrated Hindu mathematician, and the earliest known author on Algebra, is now generally believed to have lived about the beginning of our era. Nothing, however, has yet appeared that can give us the slightest information as to the place of his birth, or the time when he lived; nor is there, as far as we know, any tradition or record extent from which we can collect any of the circumstances of his life; even his period is still a matter of dispute. We must, therefore, content ourselves with whatever notices we find ofAryabhatta and his system in the various writers on astronomy and other mathematical sciences whose authority is established and cannot be called into doubt.

Aryabhatta is the first writer on astronomy to whom the Hindus do not allow the honour of a divine inspiration. Writers on mathematical science distinctly state that he was the earliest uninspired and a merely human writer on astronomy. This is a notice which sufficiently proves his being an historical character.

The roles of philosophy and logic to contemporary society?

Areas of academic discipline that train one to think a subject through more clearly and more completely by serving as a form of mental gymnastics as needed in contemporary society as physical gymnastics is for our seriously deconditioned and overweight population but which requires other things as well like learning to use grammar and punctuation properly which for some reason is not permitted here
