Pure mathematician proves Pythagorean Theorem WrongApparently he said that it's not really accurate if you want to be picky and the actual formula is c^2 = a^2 + b^2 - 0.000001e, where e is Euler's Number. So yes, there is a bit of inaccuracy here. It was proven using advanced calculus and so it looks like Pythagorean was a bit wrong all along. But obviously, this minor error is not problematic since we have been using it for a few hundred years now. One last thing to note, it's April 1st today and so I wish everyone a happy April fools day. |

Re: Pure mathematician proves Pythagorean Theorem WrongYou are banned from the forum for -.00000001e days. |

a² + b² - c² = 0 Well, I guess I can't deny it, April Fools' Day is over. :wink: |
