**A2**+

**B2**=

**C2**, thisisas simple as one leg of a triangle squared plus another leg ofatriangle squared equals the hypotenuse squared.

Likewise, how do you solve c2 a2 b2?

The last equation, **a2** + **b2** = **c2**,iscalled the Pythagorean Theorem. We say “The sum ofthesquares of the legs of a right triangle equals the square ofitshypotenuse.” Good hint. Note that the hypotenuse sitsbyitself on one side of the equation **a2** + **b2**=**c2**.

**c**=a

^{2}**+**

^{2}**b**, where

^{2}**c isthe**length of the hypotenuse and a and

**b**the lengths oftheother two sides.

Besides, when can you use a2 b2 c2?

Algebraically, the Converse of the PythagoreanTheorem**can** be stated that if **a2** + **b2** =**c2**,where a and b are the lengths of the shorter sides of atriangleand c is the length of the longest side of a triangle, thenthetriangle is a right triangle.

In mathematics, the **Pythagorean theorem**,alsoknown as **Pythagoras**' **theorem**, is afundamentalrelation in Euclidean geometry among the three sides ofa righttriangle. It states that the square of the hypotenuse (thesideopposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares oftheother two sides.
