I thought the rhyme was "April showers bring May flowers?" Apparently the weather doesn't agree with me, because we're well into May now, and the rain just keeps pouring down! I could really use a bit of sunshine right about now!
Anyways, since we're working with triangles in geometry, I've been learning about the Pythagorean Theorem. This theorem works for right triangles only. The theorem is as stated:
In this equation, a and b both stand for the legs of the triangle, and c stands for the hypotenuse. It can be very useful when you only know two of the leg measures and need to find the third. Also, if you know that the right triangle is also isosceles, then you would only need one of the side measures to find the other two.
I hope that this information will be useful to you and that you have a good week! Hope for sunshine! :)
