WILL GIVE MEDAL which of the images above represents a proof of the pythagorean theorem? Explain your choice, and then explain how the figure proved the pythagorean theorem.
How did you test these? Tell me what you did to prove that none of them are right?
I used the them for both of them: a^2+b^2 = c^2 For the first one I did, 25^2 + 144^2
For me, that didn't equal 169^2
are you sure that did not equal 169?
You are Given: $$a^2 = 25$$, $$b^2= 144$$ and $$c^2=169$$
25^2 + 144^2 = c^2 625 + 20736 = c^2 21361 = c^2 c = √21361 which is equivalent to 146.2
You are NOT given $$a=25, b=144 and c=169$$
You're going at it the wrong way. Look at what skullpatrol did. Your boxes are given in area units meaning that is:\[height \times length\] it's not the volume that is being squared
How do you find an area of a square?
and for my earlier post it's not the area that is being squared**
Area of square = a^2 a = side of square
