### 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:

Math Is Fun Rocks!
By the power of the exponent, I square and cube you!

Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

hi,

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