Best Answer

James Garfield is the only president credited with an original proof of the Pythagorean Theorem.An educated guess is that most of the college educated presidents knew a proof of this theorem at one time in their schooling.

James Garfield created a new proof for this famous theorem. The proof is algebraic in nature and appears in some geometry books.

first prove *: if A intersect B is independent, then A intersect B' is independent. (this is on wiki answers) P(A' intersect B') = P(B')P(A'|B') by definition = P(B')[1-P(A|B')] since 1 = P(A) + P(A') = P(B')[1 - P(A)] from the first proof * = P(B')P(A') since 1 = P(A) + P(A') conclude with P(A' intersect B') = P(B')P(A') and is therefore independent by definition. ***note*** i am a student in my first semester of probability so this may be incorrect, but i used the first proof* so i figured i would proof this one to kinda "give back".

Prove they could succeed in politics.

1609 The above date is "official history" or his story. The first people in the Americas were the Olmecs. Giant heads found in Mexico prove this point depicting African features as well as pyramids. Unfortunately our country has not fully accepted that Africans were the first people on earth. The first people anywhere on earth as far as we know, were of African (negroid) decent. All other race variations springs from this group.

A ruler or a compass would help or aternatively use Pythagoras' theorem to prove that the diagonals are of equal lengths

Yes, the corollary to one theorem can be used to prove another theorem.

Yes, he must have proved his own Theorem otherwise it would not have been adopted by mathematicians across the globe. I'm sure you could test out the theorem: check whether c2 really does equal b2 + a2 in a manual measurement of a triangle; though this is less accurate and not as precise as the Theorem.

Because Pythagoras was the first person to prove the pythagorean theorem correct and his philosophy influence all other philosophers after his death, incluing Plato and Aristotle. His Pythagorean School gained influence and respect during the years around 520 BC in Italy. His Society was spread all throughout Europe and Asia.

You cannot solve a theorem: you can prove the theorem or you can solve a question based on the remainder theorem.
