Question 1 of 5
Pythagorean Theorem

The Pythagorean theorem defines the relationship between the side lengths of a right triangle. The length of the hypotenuse squared (c2) is equal to the sum of the two perpendicular sides squared (a2 + b2): c2 = a2 + b2 or, solved for c, \(c = \sqrt{a + b}\)

<p>c<sup>2</sup> - a<sup>2</sup> </p>

For this diagram, the Pythagorean theorem states that b2 = ?

c2 - a2

a2 - c2

c2 + a2

c - a
