Pythagoras
1 Theorem
1.1 ONLY WORKS IN RIGHT ANGLED TRIANGLES!
1.2 Formula
1.2.1 a^2 + b^2 = c^2
1.2.1.1 a and b are the shorter sides
1.2.1.2 c is the hypotenuse
1.3 The square of the hypotenuse (longest side, opposite right angle) is equal to the sums of the squares of the other two sides
2 Real Life Problems
2.1 A plane flies 6 km northwards, then 8km eastwards. What would be the distance going straight to the finishing place from the beginning directly?
2.1.1 a^2 + b^2 = c^2
2.1.1.1 36 + 64 = c²
2.1.1.1.1 100 = c²
2.1.1.1.1.1 √100 = 10
2.1.1.1.1.1.1 10km
