# Mathematics - Pythagoras

Pythagoras was a Greek logician and is a revered mathematician who survived from 570 to 495 BC. As a mathematician, he is remembered as the founder of numbers or a real mathematician. He is accorded credit for the Pythagorean Theorem, though the Babylonians have written the concept.

## Pythagorean Theorem Formula

Pythagorean Theorem says that in a right-angled triangle, the hypotenuse square is equal to the sum of the other two sides' squares.

a2 + b2= c2

## What are the Pythagorean Triples?

The Pythagorean Triples are the three numbers utilized in the Pythagorean Theorem, a, b and c.

## Why is the Pythagorean Theorem important?

• Pythagorean Theorem is essential because you can determine if the triangle is acute, obtuse or a right-angle triangle. If these two squared sides are similar to the third side's squared value, which is the hypotenuse, then the triangle is a right-angle triangle.
• The Pythagorean Theorem can also assist you in finding missing side lengths of a triangle. You can see the third side length to a right triangle and find the lacking side lengths to squares and rectangles when the triangles are shoved together. The Pythagoras Theorem can help make rectangles and squares.
• Builders use the Pythagoras Maths to help hold right angles and create houses, roofs, stairways etc.

The Pythagorean Theorem works as the Euclidean length formula source and can be seen in nearly all phases of our lives.
