1 Basic Lesson: Pythagorean Theorem Basic skill One leg of a triangle is 10 cm and other leg is of 24 cm. Find out the hypotenuse? Here we have AB = 10 and BC = 24 Using the Pythagorean Theorem AC 2 = AB 2 + BC 2 Replacing value AB with 10 and BC with 24 in above formula we have AC 2 = AB 2 + BC 2 (x) 2 = (10) 2 + (24) 2 x= 676 = 26 Answer = 26 cm Basic skills Practice Find the length of a rod that has to be fixed diagonally in a room of dimensions 24 feet by 28 feet by 30 feet. Rod has to be fixed in a room diagonally which basically means diagonal of a cube. Diagonal of a cube = (l 2 +b 2 +h 2 ) Replacing values in above formula, Diagonal = ( ) = = 2260 = feet Answer = feet

2 Intermediate Lesson: Pythagorean Theorem Intermediate skills Practice A square with sides of 40 feet. What is the shortest distance between two opposite vertices? Here we have AB = 40 and BC = 40 Using the Pythagorean Theorem AC 2 = AB 2 + BC 2 Replacing value AB and BC with 40 in above formula we have AC 2 = AB 2 + BC 2 (40) 2 + (40) 2 = (x) 2 (x) 2 = = 3200 x= 3200 = (The diagonal of a square can also be calculated by using formula a 2, where a is the side of the square. Applying this formula for this problem; diagonal=40 x 2 = 40 x = In each case, answer is same) Answer = feet Intermediate skill To avoid the pond, Joe must walk 14 meters south and 48 meters east. To the nearest meter, how many meters would be saved if it were possible to walk through the pond? Suppose we have AC = 14 and AB = 48 If it were possible to walk through the pond, shortest distance could be calculated by using the Pythagorean Theorem AC 2 + AB 2 = BC 2 Replacing value AC with 14 and AB with 48 in the formula we have (14) 2 + (48) 2 = (BC) 2 (BC) 2 = = 2500 BC= 2500 = 50 Since, it is not possible to walk through the pond, Joe must walk 14m +48m = 62 Distance that would be saved if it were possible to walk through the pond = total distance-shortest distance= 62-50=12 Answer = 12 m
