Use Pythagoras theorem in practical problems
The Pythagorean
Pythagoras' Theorem: a^{2} + b^{2} = c^{2}
Where, a and b are are adjacent sides in a right angles triangle, and c is the hypotenuse.
Using this relation we can work out any missing side in a right angled triangle.
In any situation, it is easier to solve a complicated probem by breaking it down in to smaller steps.
In maths, these smaller steps are facts that we do know, like Pythagoras' Theorem.
It is important to recognise situations in which you break something down into a right angled triangle to use Pythagoras.
