The Pythagorean theorem is named after the Greek mathematican Pythagoras.
The theorem states:- 'The square of the hypotenuse of a right triangle
is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides'
In mathematical form the theorem is expressed as shown below:
a^2 + b^2 = c^2
where, c represents the length of hypotenuse, and a and b represents the
length of other two sides of right angled triangle
Given length of two sides of triangle equation helps find length of third
side of right angle triangle. Other ways to express equation is:
a^2 = (c^2 - b^2)
