Vocabulary:

legs:in right triangle the legs are the sides which make the right angle

Greek: a person who was born or living in Greece

Theorem- a statement which we shall prove to be true from previously known facts, namely definitions, postulates and already proved theorems

R.A.T.- right angle triangle

hypotenuse- longest side of a right triangle labeled size which is c.

The big triangle is made up of two right triangles. *a* of right triangle 1 is equal to *a* of right triangle 2. They have equal hypotenuse and for sure they will have the same b's.

*Right triangle 1 Right triangle 2*

to get the base of the big triangle we have b+b

6+6 = 12 the length of the base

of the isosceles triangle

problem #2

If we are going to draw the figure we will have this;

lets do first the small square

for the board:

each small squares has dimension of 3x3 cm, and the board is arranged in 8 rows of 8

*each sides (s) of the board = 3x8*

*s = 24*

*a = b = s*

*a= 24 cm*

*b = 24 cm*
