 Zack's Blogmetry This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

Pythagorean Theorem This week in geometry we learned about the Pythagorean theorem. One would use the Pythagorean theorem to find the lengths of the sides of a right triangle. The formula is: leg1 squared + leg2 squared = hypotenuse squared. The hypotenuse is the side opposite the right angle. There are two special triangles when using the Pythagorean theorem. There is the 45 degree-45 degree right triangle, and there is the 30 degree-60 degree right triangle. In the 45-45 right triangle, the hypotenuse = the leg times root 2. In the 30-60 right triangle, the hypotenuse = the short leg times 2, and the long leg = the short leg times root three.

Well have a great week bloggers, stay classy.
