When the triangle has a right angle (90°) ... ... and squares are made on each of the three sides, then ... ... the biggest square has the exact same area as the other two squares put together! Pythagoras It is called "Pythagoras' Theorem" and can be written in one short equation: a² + b² = c² Note: c is the longest side of the triangle a and b are the other two sides Last edited by skipjack; December 8th, 2014 at 05:06 PM.
