Theorem 6: In a right-angled triangle, the square of the length of the side opposite to the right-angle is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides. (Pythagoras) Given: Triangle abc To Prove: a2 + b2 = c2 a b c a b c Construction: Three right angled triangles as shown Proof: Area of large sq. = area of small sq. + 4(area D) (a + b)2 = c2 + 4(½ab) a2 + 2ab +b2 = c2 + 2ab a2 + b2 = c2 Q.E.D. a b c a b c Quit Menu

Theorem 7: If the square of the length of one side of a triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the lengths of the other two sides, then the triangle has a right-angle and this is opposite the longest side.
