...Pythagoras. The side of the triangle opposite the right angle is known as the hypotenuse. The theorem states: **In any right-angled triangle, the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sum** of the squares on the other two sides. c2 = a2 + b2 This can be used to find the length of the hypotenuse... | |
