• for all the 5th graders on here, this is high school geometry not middle school

• Can someone run me through the pythagorean theorem and how we use it in these diagrams? I did the practice just fine without it.
• The Pythagorean Theorem is the equation a^2 + b^2 = c^2. With a right triangle, you look for the hypotenuse, which is the side that does not make up the right angle. You look for the measures of the sides that make up the right angle and put them in the a^2 + b^2. Continue solving until the solution is found.
• It’s JK
• correct
• Is this Elementary school math im really confuse?
