### Pythagoras

7:23 PM

In our assignment, we're supposed to explain the Pythagorean Theorem.

Artifacts:

Pythagoras was a Greek mathematician. He was the first vegetarian. He also figured out that the earth was a sphere. He thought that when you died, you get reborn as an animal. He proved the Pythagorean Theorem to be true (and it's named after him).

The sides have to be equal and you have to mark it with the dash thing for it to be a square or else it's a rectangle.

This is the Pythagorean theorem. It says a squared plus b squared equals c squared. It can be used on any right angled triangle. It's used for finding out how long a leg or the hypotenuse is when you know how long the other two sides are. It means that the square on the hypotenuse is equal to the sums of the squares on the legs and shows the relationship between the three squares. Here's another way to show it.

Good job! Though your picture of the R.A.T. and the square was kind of hard to see. Anyways, you did a good job overall.
