Vocabulary
A RIGHT TRIANGLE (90&deg;) has two LEGS (a and b) and a HYPOTENUSE (c)
a
c
b
Pythagorean Theorem – the relationship between the legs and hypotenuse of
any right triangle.
𝑎2 + 𝑏2 = 𝑐 2
𝑤ℎ𝑒𝑟𝑒 a and b are the leg lengths and c is the hypotenuse
Questions:
How do I find
the hypotenuse
given the two
legs?
Notes:

c
15
Pythagorean Theorem - (𝑎2 +𝑏2 = 𝑐 2 )
102 + 152 = 𝑐 2
100 + 225 = 𝑐 2
325 = 𝑐 2
325 = 𝑐 2
18.03 = 𝑐
𝑐2 = 𝑐 &times; 𝑐 = c
Questions:
How do I tell if
a triangle is a
RIGHT
TRIANGLE?

Pythagorean Theorem - (𝑎2 +𝑏2 = 𝑐 2 )
102 + 52 = 152
?
100 + 25 = 225
125 ≠ 225
The triangle is not a right triangle.
