Pythagorean theorem, 16th century
Pythagorean theorem, 16th century. This theorem, named for 6thcentury BC Ancient Greek mathematician Pythagoras, states that in a rightangled triangle, the sum of the square of the hypotenuse (the side opposite the right angle) is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides. This diagram shows the squares for a triangle with sides in the ratio 3:4:5 (here, the actual unit lengths are 12, 16 and the hypotenuse of 20). The squares 144 and 256 add up to the square of the hypotenuse: 400. A sidebased rightangled triangle, this is the simplest example of a Pythagorean triple. From "La practique de geometrie" (1575) by Jean des Merliers.
