Using the Pythgoren Theorem One of the most fmous theorems in mthemtics is the Pythgoren Theorem, nmed for the ncient Greek mthemticin Pythgors. This theorem describes the reltionship between the side lengths of right tringle. Theorem Theorem 9.1 Pythgoren Theorem In right tringle, the squre of the length of the hypotenuse is equl to the sum of the squres of the lengths of the legs.
