## Why is Pythagoras theorem a² B² C²?

The Pythagorean theorem helps find the lengths of the sides of a right triangle. It states that a²+b²=c², where a and b are the sides around the right angle and c is the hypotenuse.

### What is A and B in Pythagorean theorem?

The Pythagorean theorem consists of a formula a^2+b^2=c^2 which is used to figure out the value of (mostly) the hypotenuse in a right triangle. The a and b are the 2 “non-hypotenuse” sides of the triangle (Opposite and Adjacent).

**Do A and B matter in Pythagorean theorem?**

Side A and B does not matter when your trying to apply this to the pythagorean theorem but side C must always be the hypotenuse. The hypotenuse is always the triangle’s longest side. It is opposite the right angle.

**Is a 2 B 2 C 2 only for right triangles?**

The Pythagorean theorem applies to right triangles. Recall that the Pythagorean Theorem states, for a right triangle with legs of length a and b and hypotenuse of length c, that a2+b2=c2. The hypotenuse is the side that is across from the right angle, and it is the longest side of the triangle.

## Who invented this theorem a² B² C² used for right angled triangles when explain it in brief?

(usually framed as a2 + b2 = c2), where and c is the length of the hypotenuse, and a and b are the lengths of the two other sides. It is credited to Pythagoras of Samos, a mathematician, philosopher and religious leader.

### What is the formula of A² B²?

(A²-B²) = (A-B)² + 2AB.

**How do you find C Squared in Pythagorean theorem?**

The hypotenuse formula is simply taking the Pythagorean theorem and solving for the hypotenuse, c . Solving for the hypotenuse, we simply take the square root of both sides of the equation a² + b² = c² and solve for c . When doing so, we get c = √(a² + b²) .

**What is ABC on a triangle?**

A triangle is a polygon with three sides and three angles. The three sides for triangle ABC shown above, written symbolically as △ABC, are line segments AB, BC, and AC. A vertex is formed when two sides of a triangle intersect. △ABC has vertices at A, B, and C.

## Why is the Pythagorean theorem not a law?

Why is the Pythagorean Theorem not a law? Because breaking it should not be a criminal offence. If the Pythagorean theorem were a law, you wouldn’t be able to break it, but it is not true in all geometries, so you can. In fact it is only true in Euclidean geometry (in two or more dimensions).
