## Definition

Pythagorean theorem states that the area of a square whose side is the hypotenuse of the right triangle is equal to the sum of the areas of the square on the two other sides of the right triangle.

## Summary

• We use Pythagorean Theorem in solving right triangles and complex geometry.
• It is only applicable on right triangles.
• It is the foundation of many principles in geometry.
• It is one of the best mathematical formulae.

a2 + b2 = c2       (Pythagorean equation)

where:c is the hypotenuse of the right triangle; and a and b are the other sides of the right triangle

The origin of the theorem is the subject of much debate. Though named after the ancient Greek philosopher Pythagoras (c. 570 – c. 495 BCE), historians whose focus is Mesopotamian mathematics concluded that the theorem was used extensively during the Old Babylonian period – 20th to 16th centuries BCE, years before the birth of Pythagoras.

The Pythagorean theorem is the fundamental relation between the three sides of a right triangle stating that the area of the square whose side is the hypotenuse – the side opposite the right angle – is equal to the sum of the areas of the squares on the other two sides.
