Pythagoras was a Greek man. Pythagoras believed that eating animal products was cannibalism because they might contain the souls of human ancestors. Pythagoras found the proof for the Pythagorean theorem. He discovered square roots by comparing square piles of rocks.

The picture and numbers on the post .

How are all of the pictures and vocabulary connected.
The hypotenuse is the longest side of a right triangle in the Pythagorean theorem. When you want to find out what the length of the hypotenuse is you just the length of the two legs A and B. Which explains the triangle picture. The actual Pythagorean theorem is A2+B2=C2 which explains that picture. Pythagoras was a Greek man known as the father of mathematics and geometry. which explains he word Greek.

I couldnt get the the squar root download thing so I just took a picture of my work i hope you can see it.

Well as you can kind of see I just did one side of the triangle and the its the same on the other side so I just double the answer 6 and i get an answer of 12 and the answer is 12 mm.

This diagram shows the game plans for a game designed by Harbeck Toys INC. The board is made up of a square and four identical right triangles.

If the central square has an area of 225 square centimeters what is the perimeter of the board game? First i labeled the picture
And that's how its done.
