So, I went to a British tutoring site and found out about the Pythagoran Theorem problems.

Here is the Pythagoran Theorem itself:

1. Take 2 numbers, 1 being larger than the other. For example, 12 and 13.

2. Square them.

3. Subtract one from the other. 169-144=25

4. Find the square root of it. [math25=5[/math]

Therefore, the final formula would be:

Hi;

Your latex is breaking up.

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**
