P ROOF OF THE P YTHAGOREAN T HEOREM Let’s start by making taking three identical right triangles of sides a and b with a hypotenuse of c , and putting them together to make a square with all sides of length c as shown below. This shape has an outer square and an inner square. This proof of the Pythagorean Theorem relies on the FACT the area of the outer square MUST be equal to the area of the inner square plus the areas of all four

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
