Pythagorean Theorem 3 4 5 Right Triangle
This example demonstrates the pythagorean theorem for a right triangle with sides length , , and . The pythagorean theorem equates the squares of the sides of the right triangle together.
Set up pythagorean theorem and substitute sides of the right triangle.
Evaulate the exponent expressions.
Add the numbers on the left side. Visually this can be respresented as the area of the side squares equals the area of the hypotenuse square.
The theorem holds for a right triangle with sides 3, 4, and 5.
