1 The theorem of 8 Pythgors ontents: Pythgors theorem [4.6] The onverse of Pythgors theorem [4.6] Prolem solving [4.6] D irle prolems [4.6, 4.7] E Three-dimensionl prolems [4.6] Opening prolem The Louvre Pyrmid in Pris, Frne hs squre se with edges 35 m long. The pyrmid is 20:6 m high. n you find the length of the slnt edges of the pyrmid? Right ngles ( 90 o ngles) re used when onstruting uildings nd dividing res of lnd into retngulr regions. The nient Egyptins used rope with 12 eqully sped knots to form tringle with sides in the rtio 3:4:5: This tringle hs right ngle etween the sides of length 3 nd 4 units. In ft, this is the simplest right ngled tringle with sides of integer length.

2 170 The theorem of Pythgors (hpter 8) The Egyptins used this proedure to onstrut their right ngles: orner tke hold of knots t rrows mke rope tut line of one side of uilding PYTHGORS THEOREM [4.6] right ngled tringle is tringle whih hs right ngle s one of its ngles. The side opposite the right ngle is lled the hypotenuse nd is the longest side of the tringle. The other two sides re lled the legs of the tringle. round 500, the Greek mthemtiin Pythgors disovered rule whih onnets the lengths of the sides of ll right ngled tringles. It is thought tht he disovered the rule while studying tesselltions of tiles on throom floors. Suh ptterns, like the one illustrted, were ommon on the wlls nd floors of throoms in nient Greee. hypotenuse legs PYTHGORS THEOREM In right ngled tringle with hypotenuse nd legs nd, 2 = y looking t the tile pttern ove, n you see how Pythgors my hve disovered the rule? In geometri form, Pythgors theorem is: In ny right ngled tringle, the re of the squre on the hypotenuse is equl to the sum of the res of the squres on the other two sides. X X X GEOMETRY PKGE
