**The Pythagorean Theorem**

5-7 The Pythagorean Theorem Section 5.7 Holt McDougal Geometry Holt Geometry

2
Warm Up Classify each triangle by its angle measures. 3. Simplify 4. If a = 6, b = 7, and c = 12, find a2 + b2 and find c2. Which value is greater?

3
The Pythagorean Theorem is probably the most famous mathematical relationship. It states that in a right triangle, the sum of the squares of the lengths of the legs equals the square of the length of the hypotenuse. a2 + b2 = c2

**Randy is building a rectangular picture frame**

Randy is building a rectangular picture frame. He wants the ratio of the length to the width to be 3:1 and the diagonal to be 12 centimeters. How wide should the frame be? Round to the nearest tenth of a centimeter.

9
What if...? According to the recommended safety ratio of 4:1, how high will a 30-foot ladder reach when placed against a wall? Round to the nearest inch.

10
A set of three nonzero whole numbers a, b, and c such that a2 + b2 = c2 is called a Pythagorean triple.

11
**Tell if the side lengths form a Pythagorean triple..**

Find the missing side length.

12
**Tell if the side lengths form a Pythagorean triple..**

Find the missing side length.

13
The converse of the Pythagorean Theorem gives you a way to tell if a triangle is a right triangle when you know the side lengths.

14
**You can also use side lengths to classify a triangle as acute or obtuse.**

15
**By the Triangle Inequality Theorem, the sum of any two side lengths of a triangle is greater**

than the third side length. Remember!

16
**Tell if the measures can be the side lengths of a triangle**

Tell if the measures can be the side lengths of a triangle. If so, classify the triangle as acute, obtuse, or right. a. 5, 7, 10 b. 5, 8, 17 c. 7, 12, 16 d. 3.8, 4.1, 5.2

17
Lesson Quiz: Part I 1. Find the value of x. 2. An entertainment center is 52 in. wide and 40 in. high. Will a TV with a 60 in. diagonal fit in it? Explain.

18
Lesson Quiz: Part II 3. Find the missing side length. Tell if the side lengths form a Pythagorean triple. Explain. 4. Tell if the measures 7, 11, and 15 can be the side lengths of a triangle. If so, classify the triangle as acute, obtuse, or right.
