Pythagoras theorem explanation 2

The following may also help you remember the Pythagoras theorem formula.

Take the Squares example A square plus B square is C square

The sum of the squares `A+B` are exactly the same size as square `C`

A plus B squared is C squared

We can also show this more explicit by drawing the same problem with cubes.

Only right angle triangles can be used in the three four and five triangle method


Proved by

`3times3` `+` `4times4` `=` `5times5`
`9` `+` `16` `=` `25`
    `25` `=` `25`

They call this a three, four, five triangle and it only works with right angled triangles.
