3
Problem of the Day A side of a square A is 5 times the length of square B. How many times as great is the area of square A than the area of square B? 25

4
6-3 The Pythagorean Theorem Learn to use the Pythagorean Theorem and its converse to solve problems.

5
Vocabulary Pythagorean Theorem leg hypotenuse

6
a2 + b2 = c2

7
**Additional Example 1A: Find the the Length of a Hypotenuse**

Find the length of the hypotenuse. c A. 4 5 a2 + b2 = c2 Pythagorean Theorem = c2 Substitute for a and b. = c2 Simplify powers. 41 = c2 41 = c Solve for c; c = c2. 6.40 c

8
**Additional Example 1B: Find the the Length of a Hypotenuse**

Find the length of the hypotenuse. triangle with coordinates B. (1, –2), (1, 7), and (13, –2) a2 + b2 = c2 Pythagorean Theorem = c2 Substitute for a and b. = c2 Simplify powers. 225 = c Solve for c; c = c2. 15 = c

9
**Find the length of the hypotenuse.**

Try This: Example 1A Find the length of the hypotenuse. c A. 5 7 a2 + b2 = c2 Pythagorean Theorem = c2 Substitute for a and b. = c2 Simplify powers. 74 = c Solve for c; c = c2. 8.60 c

10
**Find the length of the hypotenuse.**

Try This: Example 1B Find the length of the hypotenuse. B. triangle with coordinates (–2, –2), (–2, 4), and (3, –2) x y (–2, 4) The points form a right triangle. a2 + b2 = c2 Pythagorean Theorem = c2 Substitute for a and b. = c2 Simplify powers. (–2, –2) (3, –2) 61 = c Solve for c; c = c2. 7.81 c

11
**Additional Example: 2 Finding the Length of a Leg in a Right Triangle**

Solve for the unknown side in the right triangle. a2 + b2 = c2 Pythagorean Theorem 25 b 72 + b2 = 252 Substitute for a and c. 49 + b2 = 625 Simplify powers. – –49 b2 = 576 7 b = 24 576 = 24

12
**Try This: Example 2 Solve for the unknown side in the right triangle.**

a2 + b2 = c2 Pythagorean Theorem 12 b 42 + b2 = 122 Substitute for a and c. 16 + b2 = 144 Simplify powers. – –16 4 b2 = 128 b 11.31 128 11.31

13
**Additional Example 3: Using the Pythagorean Theorem to Find Area**

Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the height of the triangle. Then use the height to find the area of the triangle. a2 + b2 = c2 Pythagorean Theorem a = 62 Substitute for b and c. a = 36 6 6 a a2 = 20 a = units ≈ 4.47 units 4 4 Find the square root of both sides. A = hb = (8)( 20) = units2 units2 1 2

14
Try This: Example 3 Use the Pythagorean Theorem to find the height of the triangle. Then use the height to find the area of the triangle. a2 + b2 = c2 Pythagorean Theorem a = 52 Substitute for b and c. 5 5 a2 + 4 = 25 a a2 = 21 a = units ≈ 4.58 units 2 2 Find the square root of both sides. A = hb = (4)( 21) = units2 4.58 units2 1 2

15
