Concepts Covered

The Pythagorean Theorem applies to all right triangles and states that the square of the hypotenuse (the longest side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the square of the two other sides, or a2 + b2 = c2. Substitute values for the length of legs and hypotenuse to determine the missing side. Determine if the side lengths given form a right triangle. Determine the missing side length in a right triangle. Solve real-world and mathematical problems that involve the Pythagorean Theorem.
