  • Drawing with Pythagoras
    first discovery and proving of this ancient math theorem came before Pythagoras but since no tangible account of this has yet been documented it is named as such If that was true however we wonder what another name of the theorem would have been and from what country and nation a fun question to ponder The Pythagorean Theorem can be used with any shape and for any formula that squares a number And in fact the area of any shape can be computed from any line segment squared http en wikipedia org wiki Pythagorean theorem reference also for Diagram Above Apparently even the teenage Brainiac Lisa Simpson from The Simpsons television series knows all about Pythagoras On this site there are some cool diagrams showing the differences of Lines Segments Legs Radius and Area http betterexplained com articles surprising uses of the pythagorean theorem And to assist in figuring out these math scenarios this site offers tabs for entering in numbers to calculate the square root of the numbers in question http www math com students calculators source square root html Finally here are a few Real Life Examples Meet Me at The Corner Let s say Stephanie and Maria are meeting at the Hiking Trail Entrance on the corner of Saanich Rd and Cedar Rd One phones the other on her mobile phone and asks How long will it be before you arrive at the entrance Well let s estimate by first finding out how far away we are from each other In present time Stephanie is on Saanich Rd to and is 10 miles away Meanwhile Maria is on Cedar Rd and is 4 miles away How far away from one another are Stephanie and Maria The distance between them a 2 b 2 c 2 or respectively 10 2 10 squared 4 2 4 squared or respectively 100 16 116 miles The square root of 116 is 10 77 Thus Stephanie and Maria are 10 77 almost 11 miles away from one another Hence they figure they will be another hour on their bicycles to meet one another to go hiking Firefighters Needing to Know Height of a Building 3 Firefighters receive a call to help Ann rescue her cat Tia from the Oak Tree outside her window The tree is about 3 stories tall and the Tia after chasing a squirrel is stuck on a branch at about the height of 2 stories of her house The height to the branch may be 20 feet and the firefighters have to put the ladder about 10 feet away from the Oak Tree in order to go around Ann s shed How long of a ladder do the firefighters need in order to rescue Ann s cat a 2 b 2 c 2 or respectively 20 2 10 2 2 2 the length of ladder required 400 100 500 The square root of 500 is approximately 22 37 The firefighters extend their expandable ladder to be approximately 23
