PYTHAGOREAN THEOREM

In any right triangle, the sum of the squares of the lengths of the legs is equal to the square of the length of the hypotenuse, a²+b²=c²

###
CONVERSE

If the square of one side of a triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, then the triangle is a right triangle.

###
PROOF

a²+b²=c² where c is the hypotenuse while a and b are the legs of the triangle.

###
LEGS

The two sides of a right triangle that form the right angle. ( called a and b)

###
HYPOTENUSE

The side of the right triangle that is opposite the right angle ( called c)

###
COUNTER EXAMPLE
