Video 2 (Proof)

Video 3

So What do you think about Pythagoras? Post comment about the Man, his contributions or the Pythagoras Theorem

1. Pythagoras is lucky to have travelled so far and wide and must have been a smart man to discover all these things. THe idea of starting a university is a good one as it allows him to share knowledge with other people who do not have the fortune of travelling worldwide.

2. Pythagoras created/ discovered the pythagorus theorem. Pythagoras theorem was a great discovery the lead to great help for architects and mathematicians.

3. Pythagoras Theorem is dervied from the people who wanted to build pyramids, Pythagoras came and discovered that the square of the lengths of the two non-hypotenuse of a triangle = square of hypotenuse.
a^2+b^2=c^2

4. The Pythagoras theorem is discovered by Pythagoras, in Egypt. It was inspired by the pyramids. It helped in alot the field of science and mathematics. a^2+b^2=c^2

5. What I have learnt about - i have learnt about the life of Pythagoras and the effects he had on the people around him. He has affected the political parties and did not fully discover the theory on his own, he got some of the theory form the Egyptians where they had 3,4 and 5 as the lengths of the sides of the triangles.

6. Pythagoras Theorem is dervied from the people who wanted to build pyramids, Pythagoras came and discovered that the square of the lengths of the two non-hypotenuse of a triangle = square of hypotenuse.
a^2+b^2=c^2

What I have learnt about the life of pythagoras
I have learnt that pythagoras did not fully discover the theory by himself. Instead, his theory was merely an explanation to the egyptians formula of when a 12cm rope is divided into pieces of 3,4 and 5, it makes a right angle triangle

8. Video 2 &3:

I have learnt about the pythagoras theorem, however, it was only when I watched video 2 that I really understood what it really meant in real life.

The 3rd video is just a simple summary of what we have learnt about pythagoras theorem.

9. Pythagoras discovered the secret behind right angle triangles which is Pythagoras Theorem which is used to find the hypotenuse of a right angle triangle

10. I feel that the pythagoreas theorem is ggod as it helps people with their studies making it easier for us too. However, i pity him as society never really accepted him.

11. Pythagoras' contributions to mathematics is huge as it gives mathematicians and engineers new methods to discover things

12. Pythagoras Theorem was discovered when Pythagoras went to egypt and derived the theory when he found out ow the egyptians were building their pyramids,which was:a^2+b^2=c^2
