The Pythagoran Theorem

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

Here is the Pythagoran Theorem itself:

And following that rule, you would do a problem like this:

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:

Re: The Pythagoran Theorem

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.

hi,

He just used the wrong thing for square root in Latex.  I've fixed it.
